Retired seven time title winner Michael Schumacher, who lives in tranquil Switzerland, has a new neighbour. Swiss newspaper ‘Tribune de Geneve’ reports on Wednesday that the 25-year-old Spaniard has bought a villa in Mont-Sur-Rolle. The latest reports assert that Alonso’s new villa is in the Vaud region, in the west of Switzerland and merely twelve kilometres from Schumacher’s home in Vufflens-le-Chateau.

And not just Michael, there are more F1 drivers Alonso will be a neighbor to, like David Coulthard, Jacques Villeneuve & Jean Alesi.

David CoulthardAs reported on M&C Sport

David Coulthard says he thinks that Michael Schumacher should apologies for his past behavior on the track now that he has retired … he thinks that some of the former seven times world champion’s manoeuvres still had question marks over them.

The Red Bull driver said that if Michael didn’t apologise then it would be worrying, but that if he thinks he doesn’t even have anything to apologise for then it was even more concerning. Coulthard said that he was making the observations as an F1 fan and that he had a good off-track relationship with Schumacher working within the Grand Prix Drivers Association.

We have great respect for DC as a Formula 1 driver given his driving skills and experience. But this new “thought” of his is something we are not able to understand. Maybe we are a bit biased towards Schumi, so we will go by what you think about this. Do you really think Schumacher should issue a formal apology for his old misdeeds ??

In a 45-minute meeting at the Shanghai circuit on Friday evening, the GPDA went ahead with nominating the board that they wished to represent them for the next 12 months. It was agreed that Alonso, Webber and Ralf Schumacher will become directors, with the Toyota driver also becoming the new chairman to replace David Coulthard. The former directors of the GPDA were Coulthard, Michael Schumacher and Jarno Trulli.

It is understood that Schumacher’s stepping down from the GPDA, because of his imminent retirement, was a key factor in convincing Alonso to get involved.

One world champion giving way for another world champion ! That’s what bringing in new blood is all about. We hope that these guys will carry forward the good work others have been doing.

”I don’t recall him ever coming out and admitting he did anything wrong even when the stewards had penalised him,” David Coulthard, who races for Red Bull, was quoted as saying by British broadsheet the Guardian. He added: ”I’ve yet to see him apologise for anything that may have been deemed unsporting.”

But unlike Fernando Alonso, Coulthard thinks it is possible that seven time drivers’ world champion Schumacher could be given the benefit of the doubt.

He said of Schumacher’s refusal to ever apologise: ”That’s either a strong inner belief on his part even when the evidence of the governing body suggests he’s done something wrong, or it’s a strategy … not to show a weakness.”

A strong inner belief ? A strategy ? We believe it’s winning at any costs come what or who period. You can call it whatever you want.

“We’ve said out sorries and I don’t see why the American fans deserve more apologies than some other races which have not been particularly good,” Coulthard told British journalists at Indianapolis. “It was an unfortunate situation but those who bought tickets have had their money back and we’ll just go and do the best we can. If the Americans enjoy it, great, if they don’t then so be it,”.

Ho Ho Ho !! Strong words from a man who felt ‘disgusted’ to be connected to Formula 1 last year at same place !! Change of hearts some ??
