Schumacher finishes 21st!

MICHAEL SCHUMACHER has been ranked 21st in Forbes Magazine's "Celebrity 100" list, which calculates the status of famous people using a complicated formula of earnings and media coverage.

The list is headed this year by pop singer Britney Spears with golfer Tiger Woods second and film maker Steven Spielberg third. Madonna is fourth. The only other sportsman in the top 20 is basketball player Michael Jordan, who ranked ninth.

Schumacher ranked 21st just behind the gorgeous Cameron Diaz and ahead of author Tom Clancy and talkshow host (and F1 fan) David Letterman.

The only other racers on the list were NASCAR hero Jeff Gordon (56th) and Jacques Villeneuve (74th).
