Michael SchumacherAs reported on SportingLife.com

Martin Whitmarsh, McLaren’s F1 CEO, admits F1 will face a period of adjustment once the German has departed, he does whole heartedly believe F1 will survive in its post-Schumi era. “Inevitably, (Schumi) has a following, particularly in Germany – but on the other hand, as one door closes another opens,” he told Autosport.

“I think that with Nico (Rosberg), Lewis (Hamilton), Gary (Paffett), Heikki (Kovalainen) and (Nelson) Piquet (Jr), we’ve got an interesting rush of new blood, and I am sure those guys will be exciting to see as they develop.

Interestingly he forgot to mention Robert Kubica, the rookie who reached the podium in his third race. But then, that is not we are talking about.

We are talking about Michael Schumacher and Formula 1 next season. No doubts a lot has already been written about it and we don’t want to be repetitive. So we’ll say it once and for all.

The sports will go ahead, undoubtedly, even without Michael Schumacher, but it is going to take at least 2-3 races next season for the reality to sink-in. That’s our take on the subject, feel free to write yours.

    Yep agree with you… People will tune in on Oct 1st and realize… ‘wait a sec, There is Schumi and he is still driving a Ferrari… still fighting for a championship’… Their attitude might change again and it will go back to “Alonso v/s Schumi for 2006 WDC” mode for a month or so.

    It will take a few races in 2007 untill people realize that its Kimi and Massa in the scarlet cars and the feeling of F1 without Schumi to sink in.

    I understand all the talk over Schumi and his retirement but most people have simply overkilled the issue of F1 with out Michael… Nobody is sure what will happen… lets just wait and see… I feel it will be a smooth transition thanks to so many changes in rules(Single Tyre Man. being probably the most intresting one amoung them.)

    I completely agree with you Haas. The issue have been over killed and blown out-of-proportions, mainly because of the close fight for championship till the fag-end of the season. Has the scenario would have been same as last year, things would have been more subdued.
