Just as Michael Schumacher appeared to be getting back into the swing of things, what with his awesome qualifying at Monaco and slow but steady improvement since his not-so-triumphant return to the sport, he has been told that he is being retired against his will, just like last time. 

This is the kind of bitter end that no doubt motivated the man's return to the sport in the first place, so we wouldn't be surprised to hear if he's looking for a spot at a different team as you read this. What do you think? Will we see Schumacher Type III, and if so, who will he be racing for? We'd love to see him in a good car, but that's probably not in the cards for him at this point.

If this is his last season, we're hoping he goes out with a proverbial bang and a literal podium
