Uhm it seems to me he had to catch a private plane?
As if it would leave without him...
He also doesn't seem to be in a hurry in the youtube movie.

I guess he needs attention, he hasn't been in the spotlights for some time...

He is known to shun attention. Michael Schumacher for a number of years, has had a standing offer from both US top talk show hosts, Letterman, and Leno.
He has always declined.

I've never been a huge Schumi fan but I have a lot of respect for his ability to drive anything with 4 wheels! That being said I think regardless of how you drive on the public roads you're only as good as the worst driver on that road!

If you ever needed proof that he is an egotistical SOB, here you go. He has more than enough money to catch the next flight, if need be. But putting people on the road at risk by driving "full throttle" and passing in "unbelievable places" shouldn't be getting him accolades, it should get him smacked upside the head. Doing it with his family on board shows incredibly poor judgment.
I don't think he's an egotistical SOB. However this was the first thought when I had heard about this story. I appreciate his skills in a racecar and have been a Schumie fan forever. But if he was driving like that with his family and the taxi driver in the car he was doing something criminal.
