Vantage point

...and he's back. Michael Schumacher overcame a huge personal tragedy to chalk the first win for Ferrari this season.

This win was most remarkable. Considering the circumstances (his mother passed away yesterday), this win is even more remarkable. Reminds me of Tendulkar's century against Kenya in the 1999 World Cup, just a few days after his father died.

Though Ralf Schumacher was nowhere on the podium, he deserves full credit too. The race started with a close neck-to-neck battle for the race lead between both the bereaved brothers.

All those people who whine about what a large amount of money sportsmen make should see a replay of this race. I salute you, MS.
