Remembering the Greatness of Michael Schumacher

5297157616_511047bbf2_o A few days ago was the birthday for seven time F1 Champion Michael Schumacher.  As our readers know, Michael is still recovering from a horrible skiing accident.  We hope for his speedy recovery.

Rather than dwell on the recent accident, as an honor to his 46th birthday we wanted to post some memorable moments.  What are yours?
