“When I go out for a drink, someone else does the driving.” - Michael Schumacher, 7 Times World Champion.
Recently, I saw Michael Schumacher’s photo on a newspaper website after a real long time. I couldn’t help recollecting how until two years ago, I’d stay home every weekend watching him race in the qualifiers and on Raceday. Most of the time he’d win, but even when he did not he’d never give up and try to finish the race as high in the standings as possible to gain some extra points for the team.
The photograph showed Michael Schumacher in Brussels launching a campaign by Bacardi against drinking and driving. This ‘Champions Drink Responsibly’ campaign will be launched in more than 40 countries around the world to spread the message that 'drinking and driving don't mix'. Advertisements will show Michael Schumacher using taxis instead of driving, being a designated driver and raising awareness that you shouldn’t drive if you have been drinking.
Nowadays, Michael Schumacher is also trying his driving skills at motorbike racing. Even though he began practicing only around six months ago, he seems to be doing quite well for a beginner at his age. However, he has said that he is not trying to be the new Casey Stoner or Valentino Rossi and will not be pursuing motorcycle racing as a secondary career. Usually, whatever Schumee tries his hand at; he always aims to succeed and ends up doing unbelievably well. I believe that if he put his heart in MotoGP, he’d come out with shining colours even today!!!
