He can’t go on much longer

Michael Schumacher’s former nemesis Damon Hill has predicted that the five time world champion will soon have to retire from the sport.

Hill and Schumacher used to be arch rivals back in the mid-nineties, with the pair famously clashing in the 1994 Adelaide decider. They were never friends, until Hill retired in 1999 to take up a role behind the scenes of Formula One.

’By then I was too old to go on,’ Hill said Italy's Motorinside magazine. ‘After a certain age you're no longer able to be as fast or consistent, much less able to handle the pressure.

’Michael is now 42; in my opinion it's too old to be competitive, plus he doesn't have a car for the top positions. He can't go on like this for much longer.’ he prophesied.
