The Ferrari museum has put together a special exhibition telling the story of Schumacher’s extraordinary record-breaking F1 career, which has seen the German race driver win an as yet unequaled 7 world titles, 91 victories, and 155 podiums.
The Hall of Victories displays some of the most important Ferrari single-seaters driven in his 11 years with The Scuderia.
They range from the F310 of Y 1996, with which Mr. Schumacher won 3 GPs in his 1st season with the iconic Italian firm, to the F399, the car that won the Constructors’ title in Y 1999 to set F1’s oldest team off on an exceptional run of victories.
There is also the F1-2000 of the legendary ‘Alba Rossa’, when at Suzuka Michael secured Ferrari its 1st the world title since Jody Scheckter 21 years before.
Then there are the record-breaking F2002 and F2004, and the 248 F1 of Y 2006, in which he triumphed at the Chinese GP for his 72nd and final victory with Ferrari.
Fans making the pilgrimage can also discover a lesser-known side to Mr. Schumacher.
After leaving F1, he remained at Ferrari not only to help The Scuderia, but also to contribute to the development of various road cars, such as the 430 Scuderia in 2007 and the Ferrari California in Y 2008.
The exhibition is running alongside ‘Driven by Enzo’ and ‘Passion and Legend’, which are also open at the Maranello Museum.
Happy Birthday Schumi.
