German Legend Retires

Not Ralf (well as far as I know, who would notice).

Bernd Schneider is to retire after 5 DTM titles (so far) 1 ITC title and 17 years listening to Norbert. :clap) :clap)

iirc he has a 50% sucess rate in winning the title since 2000 - 4 out of the last 8. >?:PLO

he also has competed against some great drivers of course such as jean alesi, mark webber and ralf.


dtm won't seem the same next season. :cry:

I think it's the right time though, he hasn't been competitive the last two years and not really done anything this year.
I wonder who will get promoted, Ralf? Paffett?

I haven't actually seen any of it but I got the impression Ralfs debut season hadn't been a massive success? >?:PLO

To be fair he's in an uncompetitive car, he's had some good results and qualifying for the class he's in but most of the season been anonymous trundling round the back or retiring.

He's got 3 points compared to Gary Paffett who has 13 in the same car. Although Paffett is a former DTM champion, the only other Mercedes driver in a 2007 car with points is Lauda with 1.
Prémat (10 pts), Rockenfeller (6 pts), Winkelhock (6 pts), and Jarvis (5 pts) are the 2007 Audi drivers who have scored.
