Michael Schumacher finally finished in the top-three of an F1 race following his much publicised comeback.

His third place in Valencia throws him in some pretty unique company in F1's record books. Schumacher is now the 12th-oldest F1 driver in history to score a podium.

The top 13 drivers in that list all scored their podiums in the 1950s with the exception of Schumacher and Jack Brabham in 1970.

That, if nothing else, should be proof that Schumi's achievement is no mean feat and not exactly something someone of his age can pull out of a hat.
