Schumacher 'can't go on' predicts Damon Hill

Updated: 


Damon Hill has tipped his former championship nemesis Michael Schumacher to soon quit Formula One.

The pair fought mercilessly for titles in the mid 90s - famously clashing at the 1994 Adelaide decider - and were never friends throughout the period until Hill retired in 1999.

When the Briton last raced for Jordan, he was 39.

"By then I was too old to go on," Hill told Italy's Motorinside. "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 predicted.
