Schumacher wins at Imola

Michael Schumacher proved that he is the King of San Marino, winning the 2006 FIA Formula 1 Grand Prix race today at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari, in Imola.

Driving his Ferrari 248 F1 and with a two-stop strategy, Schumi held off Fernando Alonso to win the race.

Hopefully, this late first win for Ferrari will signal the end of the nightmare that was the 2005 FIA Formula season, and herald in a victory-laden 2006.

After passing the late, great Ayrton Senna for number of pole positions this past weekend, Schumacher notched his 85th Formula 1 Grand Prix win, also a record.

He had passed Juan Manuel Fangio for total number of world titles, a while back, with a total of seven to Fangio's five.
