The astonishing seven world titles and record 91 race victories made him one of the greatest Formula One drivers but in his second stint Michael Schumacher has not won a single race in almost three years.
Does this forgettable comeback hurt his legacy as one of the most celebrated drivers in the F1 world? Ask the German legend and his answer is a firm "no.
"There will be lot of opinions. But it remains. It has not changed. I am still capable of fighting but as a team we have not managed. We win together, we lose together. But it (legacy) is not harmed personally," Schumacher, who has decided to retire after this season, said.
He won his first title in 1994 and 1995 and then revived Ferrari with his five consecutive titles from year 2000.
He joined Mercedes in 2010 and has managed just one podium finish. A third place at European Grand Prix this season has been his best result in the comeback.
The German said the tough three years taught him a lot.
"Things have not gone according to the expectations. It's been tough three years. We have failed as a team, criticised and that's reasonable and acceptable. I have grown and matured and that's what happens."
He also said that he does not have much to regret in his career.
"Yes, in the hindsight probably, you have (regrets) but most of the time I have made the right decision."
The German, who enjoys a huge fan-following in India, said he was overwhelmed by the passionate support he got from\ the country.
"What I take from India is the emotional fan following. It's been surprisingly high. There are some specific groups (in the world) but here they are too many. It's beautiful to see I am loved so much. So many people share the passion for sport I love," he said.
