    The way he bounded out of the car is in sharp contrast to the exhausted drivers of past. That's one thing that Schumacher brought to the sport, all round athletes. There's arguments for comparing eras and how hard the cars are to drive, but these days the drivers all seem lean and fit. Not on 20 cigs a day whilst chundering on pies.

    He did look bloody knackered though. Could be starting to lose the full benefits of youth.

    To be fair hes older than we all think. I forgot he was 22 ish when he made his debut, which is old compared to the likes of Vettel, Max etc. I think he's 32/33 now. Button is 36/37 and Vettel is 29 I think?

    Hamilton turned 32 earlier in the year, Vettel will be 30 in July..
    Not much of an age difference.
