I'm no huge F1 fan (actually I'm not one at all) and I see this guy as a shitbag, but that's no reason to celebrate his death. The Schumacher situation is tragic, but people have been forgiven for things that make leaking some medical information documents to the press seem harmless. It's not as if it was an attempt to thwart his recoveries, thoughtless and greedy though his actions were.
