Ferrari Museum in Maranello to Host Michael Schumacher Exhibit

The exhibit dedicated to one of the sports legends will open on February 3, the same day Schumacher will celebrate his 50th birthday.

Ferrari says the event is meant as both “a celebration and a mark of gratitude to the most successful Prancing Horse driver ever.” The exhibit will feature elements that will bring back memories of the times when the German became world champion seven times, the only one to have ever achieved such a feat.

Also in the rooms of the museum Ferrari will showcase the man’s contribution to the birth of the GT cars manufactured by the Prancing Horse.

Michael Schumacher won during his nearly 17-years-long career a total of 91 races. He drove for Jordan Grand Prix, Benetton and eventually Ferrari, before his retirement from Formula one in 2006. In 2010, he made a short comeback as a driver for Mercedes.

His glory years remain however those spent at Ferrari. Of the seven championship wins, five were consecutive and occurred while driving for the Italians, between 2000 and 2004, while the other two championships were won with the Benetton team in 1994 and 1995.

Nearly five years ago, Schumacher was badly injured while going down a ski slope in the French Alps. The F1 legend fell and hit his head on a rock, and even the fact that he was wearing a helmet did not prevent him from sustaining a serious head injury.

As a result of this incident, the Formula 1 star had to undergo two surgeries and spent a great deal of time in a drug-induced coma. His current physical state remains largely unknown, as those around him prefer to keep his suffering private.
