Schumacher was rooting for Ferrari to win the title
30 November, 2012
Nov.30 (GP247) Michael Schumacher, whose career came to an end after the Brazilian grand Prix at Interlagos, says he wishes that Ferrari had won the Formula One Constructors’ Championship and congratulated Sebastian Vettel for winning the title for a third time.
The seven time world champion, five of whose titles were won with Ferrari, admitted, “I felt very sorry for the Ferrari team, to whom I still have such a close connection. For this season, I would have much preferred to see the constructors’ champions wearing red…”
However, he added, “Now that the dust has settled, I would like to again congratulate Sebastian on winning his third world championship. It was certainly a nerve-wracking race for him and he brought the season to a masterful end. I have known this guy so long and like him a lot; I am really pleased for him. For me, the right man won the drivers’ championship.”
