Organisers of the Brazilian grand prix are planning to send Michael Schumacher
back into retirement in style. In late 2006, the seven time world champion entered his first retirement with a pre-race celebration on the Interlagos grid involving soccer legend Pele.
Now, with the 43-year-old's ultimate trip into retirement also coinciding with a Brazilian season finale, race organisers are planning a similar send-off. But for now, the details are top secret. "Just beforehand we will talk with Bernie Ecclestone
, so as we do not interfere with any of the other activities," Interlagos chief Claudia Ito is quoted by Agencia Estado. Ito is also quoted by Globo: "You'll all be surprised. Even Bernie doesn't know what will happen. I am sure Schumacher will like it," he added. (GMM)
