Michael Schumacher Retirement
Contest Directions: [ On Sunday, Formula One racing legend Michael Schumacher, had the final race in his career and has officially retired. Weeks ago Schumacher announced that he will retire afer this Formula One season, and this Sunday he waved the official good-bye to the 12 million German spectators and many more Formula One fans, after finishing fourth at the Brazilian Grand Prix. Schumacher is a seven-times world champion, is the world's first billionaire athlete, and his retirement income will be over $20 million per year, mostly from signed advertising contracts. ]
Schumacher has been living his life in the fast lane. Now that he's retired (at the age of 37), will he just slow down, turn to the first gear, and slowly turn into a couch potato? Money can't buy him happiness, but I'm sure he'll be more comfortable crying in his multi-million dollar estate. Boredom didn't kill Bill Gates, and it has no plans of killing Michael Schumacher either. And with all these advertising contracts, he can still make ends meet during his retirement.
In this contest you are asked to age Michael Schumacher. In addition, you can show how aged Schumacher will spend his older days - e.g. what advertisements he will appear in, and what products he will endorse.

This contest is fueled by the following news: In point of fact, even the harshest critics of Michael Schumacher needed to be at least a bit impresses with his daring sprint through the driving field in his final Formula One race of his career. At least that is what German newspapers reported on Monday. While most Germans are fans of Schumacher, their native son, he does have is detractors in his own homeland. Even some his critics had to concede that his last race was a thrilling farewell to Formula One racing. In fact, the Bild newspaper devoted an amazing three full pages to Schumacher. In the race, he fought his way back from fourth place to take the win. 12 million Germans watched the race. Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, paid tribute to Schumacher in an open letter that was published in the Bild newspaper. The Chancellor put Schumacher on the level of other German greats, including Steffi Graf, Franz Beckenbauer and Max Schmeling. She concluded that Schumacher enriched Formula One racing by his brilliance.
