Michael Schumacher created a notable niche for himself in winning the European GP on Sunday, as he became a five-time Nurburgring winner.
Okay, so it's not the Nordschleife circuit that used to strike fear into so many drivers, but even greats such as Juan-Manuel Fangio and Sir Jackie Stewart only won there three times.

Something that doesn't lose its luster over time is the feeling of winning on home soil, and nobody knows that better than Michael - this was his eight victory and 14th podium in Germany, stretching back to his first Hockenheim appearance in 1992.
While the Ferrari driver was enjoying his 145th career appearance on the rostrum, teammate Felipe Massa found himself spraying champagne for the first time since he won the Formula 3000 Euro Series in 2001.
