Sad morning. Schumi made it official.

Monza was the perfect place for him to announce. Today made it 7 career wins for Schumi at the Italian Grand Prix. Is it the right time? I think he still had another couple of years in him but apparently Ferrari had other plans. Controversy about whose decision it really was but it was obvious to me that Michael was very emotional about announcing his decision.

*le sigh*

Who will I root for now? If (when, but it hasn't been announced yet) Kimi drives for Ferrari next year, I can put my allegiance behind him but, at the end of the day, it'll still be Ferrari I'm pulling for. I like Kimi but it will take me a while to get used to no Schumi.

I have no love lost for Luka de Montezemolo ... he seems to be the driving force behind the announced retirement and it's being regarded as a business decision. His forced celebration with Schumi at the end of the race gave me the willies. He obviously does not want to be seen as the bad guy here but Schumi's face, and the Speed TV crew's commentary, said differently.
