But Fisichella doesn't...
After three races without the seven time world champion, German television is apparently already missing Michael Schumacher
According to free-to-air formula one broadcaster RTL, only 5.78 million spectators tuned in to Sunday's telecast
of the Bahrain GP.
6.5m Germans watched the Sakhir race last year, but it should be pointed out that in 2006 the Sakhir event opened the calendar.
Meanwhile, while Germany may be missing Schumacher, it seems that his former rivals are not.
Renault's Giancarlo Fisichella
told the newspaper Gulf News that it is every driver's choice when to draw his career to a close.
"He is a good champion, but I do not particularly miss him on the tracks," the Italian admitted, adding his opinion to other drivers who have expressed similar comments.
