'Hamilton should switch on his brain before he talks'

The head of Michael Schumacher's fan club has hit out at Lewis Hamilton for comments about the beleaguered F1 legend. Kolner Express, a German tabloid, has quoted the new triple world champion Hamilton as comparing his achievements with the record seven titles won by Schumacher.

"I've never done the things that Michael did to win my titles," the Briton is quoted as saying. "I won mine with my natural abilities only." Hamilton may have been referring to divided opinions about Schumacher's wheel-to-wheel tactics, or rumours of favouritism within Ferrari and tyre supplier Bridgestone.

But considering the sad situation now endured by the beleaguered Schumacher and his family, Reiner Ferling said: "Hamilton should probably switch on his brain before he talks. He should learn about what Michael achieved. I just say, pride comes before a fall," added Ferling, president of the fan club of Schumacher's home town Kerpen. (GMM)

  • Judging from e.g Japan and Austin, to just mention two occasions, Hamilton shouldnt be the one to talk about questionable wheel-to-wheel tactics. Im sure he'd win this year either way, but he won so dominantly thanks to a significantly better car and a bad luck for Rosberg. Had he not retired in e.g Russia, thing's be a lot closer. Thats basically all there is to it. Schumi could score good wins even with a car that wasnt dominant, much like Vettel has been able to this season.
