Michael Schumacher, winning streak hits the break shoe.

Schumacher’s winning streak may have hit the break shoe, but the engine is still running. The oldest driver in the sport has gone without a win in the past 7 races, the longest ever desert since 1995. But he’s still kicking, and thirsty for wins. The manner in which he sliced past Brazilian team mate Rubens Barrichello on the final lap and almost collided with younger brother Ralf at the line in a desperate bid to seize sixth place in the Monoco GP suggested that he has lost none of his hunger and determination.
Schumacher takes hope from Liverpool, Wednesday's Champions League final, with underdogs Liverpool overturning a 3-0 half-time deficit against AC Milan to win on penalties in one of European soccer's greatest comebacks, reinforced that point.

It is still possible, difficult but there are still 13 races to go and so many things can happen. If you take two Grands Prix wins back 2 back things will change. Everything was focused on Alonso till Raikkonen won the last two Grand Prix and immediately things have changed.
