Michael Schumacher bade an emotional farewell to Formula One on Sunday after finishing seventh in his final race, the tumultuous season-ending Brazilian Grand Prix.

After 21 years, seven drivers’ championship triumphs and 91 victories, the 43-year-old recovered from an early puncture to score points in his final outing with the Mercedes team.

In an incident-packed race, Schumacher fell to the back of the field in the opening laps but climbed to sixth before being passed by title-bound fellow-German, and good friend, Sebastian Vettel.

“I think it’s a nice ending,” he said. “I’m finishing off and he’s (Vettel) clinching his third title. My emotions are under control at the moment, maybe later having a drink and hugging the mechanics it’ll become more sentimental.”
