Michael Schumacher's last winning celebration

Unbeknownst to all at the time, Michael Schumacher's triumph in the Chinese Grand Prix, on this day in 2006, would be his ultimate F1 win.

It was the great German driver's 91st and final victory at the pinnacle of motorsport, and one he celebrated awith Ferrari engineer Chris Dyer.

Schumcaher's win in Shanghai that day put him level with Renault's Fernando Alonso in the championship standings with just two races to go.

Ultimately however, the Spaniard would have the last word that year, outscoring Schumacher in Japan and Brazil to conquer his second world title.
