AH yeah, I saw the announcement.

Unmissable.  Covers humanity, psychology, drive for excellence, triumph and tragedy.

As it happens, I was never a big fan of his as I was always a main supporter of the Brits he races against - cough, destroyed :)

When he retired, as is often the case, one realises what a legend he truly was.  His appearance on  Top Gear helped.

He is/was not as funny as Vettel but still a decent character in front of a camera.  Either way, awful situation for his friends and family.

Hopefully the documentary is balanced, showing the great stuff he did and the uncompromising bad stuff.

If it has an engine, I am there to thrash it.

Did either of you know it was Schuey coming on or was it a complete shock to all?

I know how TV often, cough, hides the real truth.

I  read Jason Plato's book this week. He said he met Michael at the Race of Champions. Thought he would be quite boring. They ended up drunk and ripping peoples clothes off them together...

During the day's filming, the hanger doors opened and a fully suited stig was stood there. As he came onto the stage, we still didn't know and personally I thought it was a joke when he pretended at first to remove his helmet, then he did! 

Later in the day we had to stop filming again as a jet took off very close and Clarkson told us it was Schumacher leaving, he'd just flown in to film that segment for an hour or so! I was sat on the front of Clarkson's personal FXX at the time :lol:

Ha, great memories. You lucky man!

I didn;t realise he ever owned an FXX?  Nutter. The silliest car money ever bought. I wonder if he drove it more than once. :)
