People have talked about how Michael was unprepared to retire because in one of the after race interviews he was unable to remember what the word for retire was in Italian.
People have talked about how he’s actually known since the 2nd July that he was going to retire because when asked he said “in Indianapolis”.
My thought was couldn’t he have actually decided at Indy last year? When despite being possibly the greatest sportsman in the world, and being the only one of the F1 superstars to actually get his car out on the track he still got things thrown at him and booed? Perhaps it was that terrible experience that made Michael start to fall out of love with F1?
