So then, Michael, farewell.
Without boring the world on my thoughts on the Most Boring Sport In The World (subsection: “To Which I’m Addicted”), the nature of sport, ruthlessness and competition, suffice it to say that I’ve read the two best comments on Herr Schumacher’s retirement:
“We will miss him a little bit as a driver. We will miss him a lot in the football matches.”
Jarno Trulli, Toyota driver
“He has broken every record in the book, has money in the bank, a loving family and lots of lovely homes but it will be very, very difficult for him to find a replacement in his life for what Formula One has given him.”
Murray Walker, former television commentator
Now then: how about going out as World Champion, eh? That’d have people forthing at the mouth…
Normal service will be resumed now that I’ve got this out of my system
