The helmet used by Michael Schumacher in his last career race is carrying a message to thank his fans for the support provided during the driver's 19 seasons in Formula 1.

The message "Life is about passions, thank you for sharing mine" will be on the sides of Schumacher's helmet this weekend at the Brazilian Grand Prix, which will mark his second retirement from F1.

Schumacher had special helmets in some of his milestone races -- gold-plated for his 20th anniversary in F1 and platinum for his 300th Grand Prix -- but this time he will be wearing the traditional red helmet.

The 43-year-old Schumacher will leave F1 as the holder of several records, including most wins (91), most pole positions (68), most fastest laps (77) and most podium finishes (155).
