    5 years ago today Michael Schumacher received a devastating brain injury while skiing in Switzerland.
    I've always hated the name of the run Michael's mistake after that accident.
    In my opinion it would be nice to call it Schumacher.
    What do you think?
    Ready & braced for all the insults I feel are about to come my way!
