What the??? What have you been SMOKING!!! :noway: :reallyevil:


Ahh, but that's where you're wrong. He doesn't smoke, because it gets in the way of his eating.

Maybe he has been eating some "special" brownies???? :hungry:

How do you explain his F1 career then? ^o^ ^o^

Norby displaying his thorough knowledge of the most intimate feelings of the DTM Fanbase

From http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/95534

Ralf Schumacher will continue to race for Mercedes-Benz in the 2012 DTM season after securing an extension to his deal.

The German driver, the younger brother of seven-time Formula 1 champion Michael, made his DTM debut in 2008 and next season will mark his fifth campaign in the series.

Schumacher scored his first two podium finishes in the DTM this year, with a third place at Hockenheim and a second at the Red Bull Ring.

"DTM is a fantastic championship and, after four years as part of the Mercedes-Benz family, I feel in the best place possible," said Schumacher. "So I'm all the more delighted to be starting a new era next year together with Mercedes-Benz.

"With the new technical regulations and the arrival of BMW on the scene as the third premium manufacturer alongside Audi and Mercedes-Benz, DTM has an exciting future, and I feel privileged to be playing my part in development of the new DTM AMG Mercedes C-Coupe."

Mercedes motorsport boss Norbert Haug added: "Ralf Schumacher isn't only the best-known driver in the DTM, he's also one of the most-liked and most successful in international motorsport.

"I rate very highly the fact that Ralf walked the difficult road from Formula One to the DTM, boosted the series' popularity and continuously improved until he scored his first podium."

Incredible. Ralph Schumacher hasn't won in his five years at DTM with Mercedes (like never winning when you're driving for Ford at the Formula Ford Series) and he gets an extension. Why this world is unfair but never in one's favor?

On a side note, the hype by Norbert Haug about Schumacher has moved from "best driver" to "best-known driver". Lemme tell you that's a sad moment in a man's career. Been there.

About the fight of the century, that is, Mark Webber vs Ralph Schumacher, I quote Bilbo Baggins, who said: "I don't know if Webber is half as good as half the grid wishes to be or if less than half the grid is half as good as half of what Webber deserves". It's all very simple.

Norby likes his Schumachers, I guess. :loser:

Why do people actually call him Half Schumacher, when he's more like Double Schumacher :jester:
Forget the people around you now. Remember the little boy who was racing in go-karts, what you were dreaming of and what he wanted to achieve one day and what was his goal. Race for him.

The name originates from the (in)famous Adrian Newey Diaries.

Man, I went back and read the first couple of pages. They're rubbish. Very little to do with Half of anything.
