The Race of Champions only comes around once a year, and somehow Michael Schumacher always seems to be in the thick of things when the final rounds arrive. This year's Race of Champions was no different, as Schumacher and fellow Germanian Sebastian Vettel served up a steaming bowl of whoop ass to the English team of Jenson Button and Andy Priaulx in the Nations Cup final. We're sure the fact that that Button and Priaulx were beaten on their own home turf in Wembley Stadium was just more salt in the wound.

The finale of the Race of Champions, however, pits the two best individual racers against each other, and as we reported yesterday, it came down to last year's winner Mattias Ekström versus Michael Schumacher in three rounds of no-holds-barred closed circuit racing. Ekström won, but as you'll see after the jump, Schumacher was a gracious loser and seems genuinely pleased just to be doing something competitive again.

Check out video of both races after the jump.
