Schumacher signs off with top ten

Team boss Ross Brawn meanwhile insisted that Schumacher's performance to score points in Sao Paulo has shown the 43-year-old at his best.

“Michael showed all of the skills that we know he has today to salvage his race; considered overtaking, good decisions on tyre strategy, and he kept the car on the road to bring us home some points,” he said. “It was a nice way to finish the season and his career with us. In terms of results, his second spell in Formula One hasn't been as special but it has been so for all of us who have had the privilege of working with him.

“It has been a real honour for all of the boys and girls at our team, and working alongside Michael gives you a real understanding of why he is so special and has achieved seven world championships. He will be missed and we all wish him the very best for the future.”
