Damon Graham Devereux Hill, the previous and forgotten last british Formula One World Champion (1996), talks about Michael Schumacher and his driving style.

Imagine this season, 2007, with Schumacher, Hamilton and the winerly Alonso racing, in particular the duels with Hamilton could have been VERY interesting.
What a loss…

Michael Schumacher

Schumacher was born in Hürth, North Rhine-Westphalia, to Rolf Schumacher, a bricklayer, and his wife Elisabeth. When Schumacher was four, his father modified his pedal kart by adding a small motorcycle engine. When Schumacher crashed it into a lamp post in Kerpen, his parents took him to the karting track at Kerpen-Horrem, where he became the youngest member of the karting club. His father soon built him a kart from discarded parts and at the age of six Schumacher won his first club championship. To support his son’s racing, Rolf Schumacher took on a second job renting and repairing karts, while his wife worked at the track’s canteen. Nevertheless, when Michael needed a new engine costing 800 DM, his parents were unable to afford it; he was able to continue racing with support from local businessmen.
