RIP Elisabeth Schumacher, i hope not all of your family are asses like your sons...

"Schumachers excused formalities after mother's death

Michael and Ralf Schumacher have been excused the necessity to participate in all formalities relating to today's San Marino Grand Prix following the death last night of their mother, Elisabeth.

They will still compete in the race from their grid positions of first and second respectively.

Elisabeth Scumacher was hospitalised in Cologne on April 10 following a fall at home, and had recently lapsed into a coma following an operation. Both brothers flew to her bedside immediately after yesterday's qualifying session.

Race stewards Tony Scott-Andrews, Roger Peart and Giuseppe Muscioni officially excused them from the formalities both before and after this afternoon's race, in an FIA bulletin released this morning.

Everyone at www.F1.com extends their sincerest sympathies to the Schumacher family."

RIP Mother Schumacher...

What's the problem? Most of us attend work to the extent that we can when a loved one dies. We take time off to attend the funeral and make arrangements for it, of course, but we don't stop work otherwise. We still have a duty to our employers (though we expect them to be understanding and to give us the time off that we actually need).

Is there some suggestion that the Schumachers are not doing all the right things, such as making funeral arrangements, just because they are in this race? I don't see any such suggestion of that here so far.

I completely agree..they just do their duty. I guess they'd love to drive now, to have something else in mind for a while.

The podium ceremony that followed Michael Schumacher's 65th Grand Prix victory was necessarily subdued, following the death of his mother Elisabeth the previous evening.

The world champion was given the choice whether or not to race and, like brother Ralf, chose to do so in honour of their mother who had been so supportive in both their careers.

As he stood atop the rostrum Schumacher was drawn and pensive, flanked by Kimi Raikkonen and Rubens Barrichello. There was none of the traditional spraying of champagne.

"Formula One has done itself credit today," one seasoned observer remarked. "It was the right thing to give Michael and Ralf the option to race today, and this prize-giving ceremony has been handled with decency."
