When I found out that he was retiring, I really felt sad. He was probably one of the reasons why I love watching Formula 1. I look up to him coz of his great personality and attitude. I think he's the best racer in the history of formula 1 (with his record breaking performance..who could contradict that?) Well, I guess I couldn't blame him for doing so, he's done and proven a lot already. He also deserves to enjoy his hard-earned fortune and spend time with his family. I just wish him well but I hope he doesn't completely absent himself from the sport he's truly great at :)

I sure do miss him. While Schumacher was on the podium after winning the 2006 Italian Grand Prix, Ferrari issued a press release stating that he would retire from racing at the end of the 2006 season. Schumacher confirmed his retirement in the post-race press conference. The press release also stated that Schumacher would continue working for Ferrari. It was revealed on 29 October 2006 that Ferrari wanted Schumacher to act as assistant to the newly appointed CEO Jean Todt. This would involve selecting the team's future drivers. After Schumacher's announcement, leading F1 figures such as Niki Lauda and David Coulthard hailed Schumacher as the greatest all-round racing driver in the history of Formula 1. The tifosi and the Italian press, who did not always take to Schumacher's relatively cold public persona, displayed an affectionate response after he announced his retirement. In December 2006, BusinessF1 magazine claimed Scuderia Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo pushed for Schumacher's ousting. However, this claim is labeled "sensational" and F1 writer-blogger Keith Collantine considers this claim highly dubious.

I also miss him. Since I was a child (1995./96.) I supported Michael Schumacher and it won't be the same without him. But good think is that there is a lot of excellent young drivers at the moment in Formula 1 (Massa, Raikonen, Alonso, Hamilton)and this season will be interesting.
