Formula 1 – Michael Schumacher Announces his (2nd and definitive) Retirement

After returning to formula 1 in 2010 with Mercedes, Michael Schumacher announced today we will be retiring from tracks in the end of the current season. In this 3 years comeback since he left F1 in 2006 Michael did not manage to win a single race, record a pole position or register a fastest lap in a race.

Nonetheless, Schumacher, who will turn 44 next January 3rd, will always be remembered as one of the most successful drivers in Formula 1. In fact, he is the best pilot in almost all statistics, such as race victories (91, or 31% of the 299 races he entered in, and a further 43 races as runner-up), pole positions (68), fastest laps, and World Titles (7, five of them consecutive between 2000 and 2004).

These records, as well as the one achieved in 2002, year in which he ended all the races in a podium place, together with a total of 155 podium finishes (more than 50% of the races he participated) will be very hard to be beaten by anyone and will entitle Michael a permanent place in Formula one’s history and hall of fame.
