BERLIN Michael Schumacher can add the
unofficial title of Germany's fastest taxi driver to his other
achievements after taking over behind the wheel to get his
family to the airport on time.
The retired Formula One champion drove the cab back to the
airport himself after a trip out to the village of Gehuelz,
near Coburg in southern Germany, left the family short of time
to make their flight home, the Muenchner Abendzeitung newspaper
"It was crazy having Schumi driving, with me in the
passenger seat," the taxi driver was quoted as saying.
The seven-times world champion, who stopped racing last
year but is still involved in the sport as an occasional tester
for Ferrari, gave the driver a 100 euro (71.76 pounds) tip on
top of the 60 euro fare, the newspaper said.
