Another Unemployed German


Michael Schumacher ended his Formula 1 career the same way he begun it. What a cracking drive at the final race of the season, the Brazilian Grand Prix! Starting 10th on the grid after suffering engine problems during qualifying, he fought his way to 6th within four laps before an unfortunate puncture put him at the back of the pack (70 seconds behind the race leader). Undeterred, he produced what must surely be the drive of the season, setting the fastest laptime of the race, to finish in 4th place. That is the stuff of legend. Simply marvellous! A fitting way for the best ever F1 driver to say farewell to the sport.

PS,
Any suggestions for the board he's holding?
