Michael Schumacher in a Ferrari F2002 won the Brazilian Grand Prix at Interlagos. Soccer legend Pele was supposed to wave the chequered flag. However, when the Schumacher brothers arrived to the finish line, Pelé was talking to someone, and forgot to show them the flag. He eventually waved the flag when the next driver, Takuma Sato arrived to the finish line, two laps down, meaning technically he had won the race. “Pele is very little,” noted Schumacher. “I didn’t see the flag though, that’s the only thing I noticed.”
