F1 drivers: Schumacher, We miss you! We can’t wait to see you back on Monaco grass next year

Fernando Alonso captains F1 team against Star XI in Monaco charity game
Formula one drivers have paid tribute to their stricken former rival Michael Schumacher.

For years ahead of the Monaco grand prix, seven time world champion Schumacher captained the F1 drivers’ football team as they annually took on Prince Albert’s all-stars at the Stade Louis.

But in 2014, the F1 legend was missing on Tuesday, as he continues to fight in France amid a long coma in the wake of his late December skiing fall.

According to the major German daily Bild, the F1 drivers’ team – now captained by Fernando Alonso – made clear they missed Schumacher as they went against all-stars like top tennis player Novak Djokovic on Tuesday night.

On the electronic advertising hoardings circling the ground, a message repeatedly read: “Michael, we miss you!

“We can’t wait to see you back on this grass next year.”
