Sao Paulo: Michael Schumacher's final race was a bit like the last three years he spent in Formula One after coming out of his first retirement - solid but unspectacular.
That didn't stop the German seven-time champion from thoroughly enjoying what he called an "exciting" Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday before walking away from a sport he dominated for many of his 19 seasons.
"Even under these difficult conditions, my final Formula One race was tremendous fun," he said. "I would once again like to thank the team and all my fans for their support over the past years. I've enjoyed the time we've spent together very much indeed."
