Seven-times world champion Michael Schumacher raced for the last time in Formula One at the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday, finishing seventh before heading into his second retirement.
The following looks at some of the highlights and low points of the 43-year-old German's career since he made his debut with Jordan in 1991.
SIX OF THE BEST
Schumacher's first race win, in the wet, and one in which he showed all his tactical brilliance. Overtaken by Benetton team mate Martin Brundle after sliding off, Schumacher noticed that the Briton's tyres were worn out. Reckoning that his must be as well, he pitted immediately for rain tyres. It was a masterstroke of timing that won him the race.
A victory from 16th place on the starting grid in changing conditions and with the German staying out on slick tyres in the wet. The outcome was tainted by controversy, with Schumacher given a suspended one-race ban for weaving on the straights to prevent Damon Hill overtaking.
In his last race in Europe for Benetton, Schumacher reeled in Jean Alesi and overtook the Frenchman two laps from the finish to win in front of his home fans at the Nuerburgring in a race hailed as the greatest of his second championship year.
Schumacher's first win for Ferrari, again in the rain, and he lapped the entire field bar the two men on the podium with him - although he was 45 seconds clear of second-placed Alesi. If anyone had asked me how much I would bet on me winning here, I would have said not one penny, declared Schumacher.
An inspired drive, coupled with a three-stop strategy at a circuit where overtaking was deemed almost impossible. Schumacher had to drive a series of sprints after technical director Ross Brawn asked him to make up 25 seconds in 19 laps. Schumacher replied 'Thank You' and did just that.
