Being seven-times world champion is not an excuse for taking taxi by time to time. The problem is that the way others drive might not please you that much; after all you are one of the fastest man on Earth. Yes, we are talking about Michael Schumacher. He needed to take a taxi like any other person, but he asked the driver, very politely, to allow him driving. And how seeing Schumacher driving is the biggest dream for person dream, the cab driver set on the right seat during the journey.
But why did Schumacher needed a taxi in the first place? Relax there was no big emergency! Just a puppy! Yes, a puppy! Schumacher flew into the aerodrome at the Bavarian town of Coburg on Saturday and took the taxi to the village of Gehuelz, 30 kilometres away, to pick up a new puppy - an Australian Shepherd dog called "Ed". And he wasn’t alone: his wife and his two children were with him.
Tuncer Yilmaz, the cab driver, said: "I found myself in the passenger seat, which was strange enough, but to have "Schumi" behind the wheel of my cab was incredible."
And if you consider that at the end of the journey Tuncer took a nice tip (on top of the 60 euros (88 US dollars) fare, he was also given a 100 euros (146 US dollars)), we can say that it was indeed a good day for him!
