Nurburgring F1 legend - Michael Schumacher

I can't believe I missed the race in Nurbrgring last Sunday even though the show time is at 10.30pm (I choose dreamland than race day *slap forehead*). I still can't forgive myself for missing the race and that particular race is the most exciting (coz it rains & lots of accident/car retired). So, what I can do were to read all the news I can from F1 official site and also BAT intranet (my office's news, we got a dedicated column for F1).

Since everyone will know by now that Alonso won that race, Massa 2nd & Webber 3rd while Kimi retired & Hamilton is 9th after he narrowly escaped injuries caused by the front tyre on Saturday's qualifying (Alonso is lucky to got away with it though), I shall talk about the legend of Nurburgring - Michael Schumacher (I am a big fan of his :p ). This bits of info is extracted from Formula 1 official site.

I am so happy that Michael has been honoured by the German circuit with a corner named after him, which is the Schumacher S (he won 5 races out of 11 races at the Nurburgring, & I think that is so awesome). So, here's the 5 races he won in the Schumacher racing history :
  • 1995 European Grand Prix Qualifying: 3rd, Race: 1st
  • 2000 European Grand Prix Qualifying: 2nd, Race: 1st
  • 2001 European Grand Prix Qualifying: 1st, Race: 1st
  • 2004 European Grand Prix Qualifying: 1st, Race: 1st
  • 2006 European Grand Prix Qualifying: 2nd, Race: 1st (the last of his race, sad to say but he is the champion of F1)
