The Secret Diary of Michael Schumacher
Planet-F1 presents 'The Secret Diary of Michael Schumacher'.
As these have been hidden for a few years now, I'll start to publish the originals and hope P-F1 don't get too upset!
Disclaimer: I am not the author, but have archived these entries for posterity as I felt that they were so well written by "Michael Schumacher" for Planet-F1 (who have removed almost all of the originals from their website).
