Driver of the decade
With his astonishing seven Formula One championships, Michael Schumacher could be the driver of the century as much as the decade.
He is poised to increase his tally still further after coming out of retirement in December 2009 to drive for Mercedes.
The German does have his rivals for the accolade, however. France's Sebastien Loeb has won six world rally championships in a row while in America Jimmie Johnson has racked up an unprecedented four successive NASCAR titles.
And that's not counting the irrepressible showman Valentino Rossi in MotoGP.
