GP Week : Issue 177a
34 GPWEEK.com // 34 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS: Michael Schumacher was delighted to overcome a puncture and treacherous weather conditions to take points for seventh place in his final ever Formula One grand prix in Brazil. Schumacher bows out of F1 for the second time, 21 years after making his debut with the Jordan team in 1991. He went on to become the most successful driver of all time, achieving an unprecedented seven world titles, 91 grand prix wins, 155 podiums and 68 pole positions. His second coming in F1 with Mercedes hasn’t been as successful as many hoped. But he leaves the sport with no regrets and took pleasure from finishing in the points in Sunday’s Brazilian Grand Prix. “Even under these difficult conditions, my final Formula One race was tremendous fun, and I would once again like to thank the team and all my fans for their support over the past years,” said Schumacher. “I've enjoyed the time we've spent together very much indeed.” Mercedes team principal, Ross Brawn, said: “In terms of results, Michael’s second spell in F1 hasn't been as special as his first but it has been so for all of us who have had the privilege of working with him. “It has been a real honour for all of the boys and girls at our team, and working alongside Michael gives you a real understanding of why he is so special and has achieved seven world championships. He will be missed and we all wish him the very best for the future.” And Mercedes motor sport boss, Norbert Haug, added: “It was great to see Michael overcoming all these problems to finish among the points in his last ever F1 race. “We thank Michael not only for his tremendous dedication and his racing achievements for our team, but also for those great personal qualities that he manifested at all times. The three seasons he spent with us will always ser ve as a model of team play at its best.” SCHUMACHER BOWS OUT WITH POINTS IN BRAZIL F1 >>> BRAZIL
