Good and bad news today in my beloved motor sport world today. Michael Schumacher announced his retirement from active racing in Formula One, after 15 years in the premier category. He done so after winning the Monza grand prix. His 90th F1 win. A pretty sad day. Almost as sad as the day that Ayton Senna died. However he did win the race to move within 2 points of series leader Fernando Alonso (whom I can't stand), so 'good one'!
Also, in the IRL (the US's top open-wheel series) Brit, Dan Wheldon won the season finale, (to my great enjoyment); ending the season tied on top spot in points with Sam Hornish Jr. Unfortunately due to a count back on wins, Sam won the championship after taking 4 wins to Dan's 2 over the season. Bastard!
'Schumi, we'll miss you! Dan, better luck next year!'
