Another disappointing weekend from Michael Schumacher served only to spark another round of speculation over his future with Mercedes.

Schumacher himself admitted he was "not particularly happy about my first experience of racing in Singapore" which saw him finish out of the points back in 13th. His team-mate Nico Rosberg took fifth position.

"I had two encounters with other cars which were racing incidents and meant that I had to make my stops at times which were not ideal and consequently my race was heavily compromised," Schumacher said. "I suffered with the rear tyres on my first set of options which made me slide rather than drive through corners which was tough, so I would probably say that I only enjoyed the second part of the race."

But former owner turned TV pundit Eddie Jordan, who has openly criticised Schumacher's performances in recent months, was in no mood to pull punches. "He's not good enough," he said. "He should not be putting his reputation and legacy at risk."
