Bye, Schumi

Michael Schumacher just announced that he is going to retire at the end of the year. He was never my favourite driver, and I still consider the incident in the last race of 1997, where he tried to drive Jacques Villeneuve off the track, to be the best example of his true colours, I have to admit one thing: When I was at the Montreal race in 2002, when Michael had won, and he was doing his victory lap, and his car came around the hairpin to where Ming and Tuan and I were sitting, and he slowed down a little and revved his engine just in front of where we were, I was cheering as loudly as anyone.

Formula One will be missing something without him.

In motorsports its best not to be a Richard Petty...
I remember watching that race in '97 in a hotel room in Toronto, bouncing up and down on the bed and screaming at the TV as Schumacher tried to ram Villeneuve off the track.
