Fernando Alonso about the 2012 season

“I score this season a 10! If we had to repeat these twenty races I would change nothing done by the team or yours truly: no mistakes, no mechanical problems, zero problems at the pit stops, zero strategic mistakes.”

Schumacher and his pupil, Vettel

An iconic image, as to symbolise the passage from the older generation, to the new one. Let’s not forget that even if Schumi finished his last GP in P7, he will still remain one of the greatest champions of all time. Thank you for MAKING our passion, Michael! 😉
