“Greetings Gregorio, we have been expecting you” St Peter said. Gregorio asked St Peter… “What is heaven like then?” St Peter replied “All the greats are here, Fangio, Gilles Villeneuve, Jimmy Clark, Ayrton Senna and they all race here on the replicas of the great tracks.” “Senna racing with Villeneuve and Clark? This is my idea of heaven!” Gregorio exclaimed.
“Exactly!” St Peter replied.
Gregorio settled into heaven very quickly. He loved watching the racing, the cars had turbos and wide tyres. The racing was all he might have hoped for until he found something that disturbed him. One day he came upon a track with a lone red Ferrari pounding round lap after lap with blinding speed. He could not believe what he saw! It looked as if the driver was wearing a helmet just like Michael Schumacher’s. And the driving style was exactly the same as his German hero’s. Gregorio was confused.
After some nights of troubled sleep he went to see St Peter about what he had seen that day. He described the scene he had seen and protested.. “But Michael Schumacher is not dead! How can he be here?”
St Peter looked around to make sure nobody was listening and whispered to Gregorio. “Keep this quiet as I could get into trouble with the Big man for telling you this..”
Peter glanced around some more…
“You see that car… that was God… he thinks he is Michael Schumacher!”
