In the days before his final of 250 grand prix appearances, Michael Schumacher in Sao Paulo visited the grave of his late rival, Ayrton Senna.

Although many fans of Brazil’s triple world champion, who died at Imola in 1994, never forgave Schumacher for celebrating his victory in the tragic race, Deutsche Presse-Agentur reports that the retiring Ferrari driver ‘visits Senna’s grave most years’.

At Imola, Senna was leading Schumacher – who later in 1994 controversially won his first title – when the 34-year-old speared fatally into a concrete wall at the Tamburello corner.

“Perhaps (Schumacher) was also looking to close that chapter in his racing career before saying his farewell,” ‘dpa’ speculated of Schumacher’s latest visit to the Senna grave.
