Michael Schumacher[edit]

I bumped into this page accidentally, and found it to be a well written and thoroughly researched piece of work. I've never nominated anything before, but I thought this article was worth an effort. Just interested to see what other people think of it. Vanky 17:24, 26 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Object for now: it's extremely unclear on its references. I'm guessing that some of the external links were used as references, but most of them look like the type of sites that probably change regularly, and none of them indicates a date on which at was accessed. -- Jmabel | Talk 20:13, Jan 26, 2005 (UTC)
  • Object. 1) Lead section is too short and uninformative - half of consists of trivia on his salary. 2) The basic content is there, but it is all so brief. Books have been written about this guy; more can be said than is currently done. A full section section on each of his Formula I season is the least I would expect, and more can also be written about his pre-F1 career and personal life. I completely miss information about his popularity (he made F1 very popular in Germany), and his brother Ralf, also a F1 racer, is only mentioned in passing. 3) I'm not sure about the lists at the bottom. The contain vital information, but take too much space as it is. Maybe they should be spun off, converted to prose, made into a table, I don't know. I do know I don't like it how it is now. 4) References, please. --- all in all, I think this article should visit WP:PR first. Jeronimo 21:47, 26 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Object. The prose is flat. Bacchiad 06:37, 27 Jan 2005 (UTC)

I think that Peer Review comment is fair- it definitely appears to have the potential to become a very good article (although everything exists in potential..), something about it just appealed to me... Vanky 11:43, 27 Jan 2005 (UTC)

  • Object (for now). I agree that WP:PR would be beneficial. I liked the article content, but it needs some work. 08:37, Jan 27, 2005 (UTC)
  • Object Schumacher has done a lot in his life so far, this article is quite informative, but there's a lot more which could be researched and added. Giano 19:05, 30 Jan 2005 (UTC)
