A Salute

A few minutes ago, I watched in utter disbelief as Michael Schumacher announced his retirement from Formula 1 after the end of this season. Michael was fresh off his 90th career victory in Monza. Furthermore, with only 3 races left, he trails Fernando Alonso by a mere 2 points for the championship.

Schumacher has earned the right to join the ranks of the greatest racecar drivers in history along with the likes of Mario Andretti, Nino Farina, Juan Manuel Fangio, Niki Lauda and Alain Prost.

We will miss Schumi.
