Schumacher Sneaks Past Alonso at Monaco

Just finished watching the Monaco Grand Prix and was overjoyed to see Michael Schumacher overtake Fernando Alonso on the final corner of the final lap.

On the 75th of 78 laps lap, the safety car was called in after an accident between Jarno Trulli and Karan Chandok. The safety car lead the cars through the remaining laps. As it pulled into the pits on the last corner of the 78th lap, everyone expected the race positions to stay as they were, as there were only a hundred metres or so left till the chequered flag.

However, Michael Schumacher was waiting like a hawk ready to pounce on a rabbit. In a classic Schumacherish move, he caught Fernando Alonso napping and raced him in the final moments of the race to snatch 6th place.

I just wish I could see the face of Fernando Alonso - he must be seething with rage behind his helmet. Michael Schumacher must be grinning and winking as usual. I wonder what they have to say in the post race interviews.

Well, I feel this Monaco Grand Prix is the true 'Return of the King' of motorsports - King Schumee!! Schumacher has finally got his groove back after coming out of retirement this season, and I am looking forward to see such racing performances in the remaining races of the 2010 season.


  1. It doesn't really matter even if he wins no more races. He's still going to be Michael Schumacher.


  2. Schumacher is the best... even better than Prost and Senna! He will win other ones...
