Untitled[edit]

Did Schumacher start racing aged three or did he just start driving? I suspect it is the latter but I could be wrong. Anyone know? SamH 10:02, 5 Jul 2004 (UTC)


Erm at the begining of the article it says ralf has been a front runner for years!! this should be taken out because its not true !


Well, his 6 wins span from 2001-2003, and he finished in the top 10 every year after that - bar 2006 - so he has been a front runner for years. Lradrama 14:04, 1 March 2007 (UTC)


I suppose he started "driving" at three not "racing". I think three years child can't rase and he even can't drive normally.


It should be 7.9 G?

This BBC Sport article [1] claims Max Mosley said "Ralf('s impact) was 78G...". I can't find any other claims regarding the g-force of Schumacher's crash but I suspect that Mosley is correct. SamH 09:24, 6 Jul 2004 (UTC)

--- Should the article mention rumours about Ralf's sexuality?

NO WAY! We don't want Wikipedia articles to be at tabloid level, do we? 80.98.174.101 13:41, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

Hello, I wrote the section regarding the rumours surrounding Ralf's private life. I explicitly noted that these were unfounded and that they were largely tabloid fodder. However, if you are familiar with F1, then you will agree that - whether true or not - those rumours inform the popular view of Ralf, and that the unwanted intrusion regarding his marriage apparently affected his performance in the relevant season. At no point did I imply that the rumours were true, indeed I specified that the media attention was unwaranted and off the tabloid variety. Like it or not, those rumours DID circulate as a result of the story, and they DID have an impact on his life. Just because it's not pleasant or appealing to Ralf's fans, there's no reason for it not to be included, unless the purpose of the site is to present only lovey-dovey positive PR-driven insight. I will re-edit the section and include press references if it makes anyone happier. Thanks.

==[edit]

i agree with you because most f1 fans know abut this story and although it wasnt true it did happen and I think it is an interesting fact but maybe it should be in a different heading like "tabloid newspapers" not peronsla life because personla life means it might be true!

USA 05[edit]

Are there any sources for "PO" for USA 05? Every source will say DNS, because Schumacher did not start. This invention of extra categories for the results table is ludicrous. Bretonbanquet 17:06, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Pay in 2000?[edit]

After the 2003 year review, the article states "Schumacher became the third highest paid driver in Formula 1 in 1999, when his pay after the 2000 season was raised to $15.5 million US". The order of events is clearly illogical, so there must be an error somewhere. Any one know what this should be? Jimmynuts (talk) 17:22, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

Fake story?[edit]

This is from the Personal life section. Schumacher married in October 2001 and had his first child in the same month??? Is this true?--JerichoNation (talk) 00:35, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
