Schumacher says it may be an emotional final race
He is hoping for some rain to increase his chances of moving up the grid. The forecast is for a wet race.
“I very much look forward to this because it offers a lot more opportunities,” the German driver said.
Schumacher will leave F1 with unmatched numbers. He is the driver with the most wins (91), pole positions (68), fastest laps (77) and most podium finishes (155).
Barely any of that success has come since he returned to F1 with Mercedes. He is only 15th in this year’s drivers’ standings, and has only one podium finish since coming out of retirement, at the European GP in July.
His fans are not showing any disappointment about his recent struggles, though. The stands at Interlagos were packed with banners and signs honoring and congratulating Schumacher on Saturday. There were more signs for Schumacher than for home-crowd favorite Felipe Massa.
“Obviously I’m feeling touched about that,” he said. “That is a very nice gesture from all those fans and people that love their motorsport. They sort of like what I was doing in all these years, so certainly it’s a good feeling.”
