Michael Schumacher's last F1 top-step podium celebration

Unbeknownst to all at the time, Michael Schumacher's triumph in the Chinese Grand Prix on this day in 2006 would go down in history as his ultimate win in Formula 1.

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

Schumacher'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.

And the great German ace's winning record of 91 victories in F1 - which seemed like a tally out of reach in our lifetime - remained unbeaten for 14 years, until Lewis Hamilton caught up and overhauled Schumacher at the Portuguese Grand Prix in 2020.
