The Ferrari Museum has opened a special exhibition called ‘Michael 50’ to celebrate the 50th birthday of Grand Prix legend Michael Schumacher.
Located at Ferrari’s headquarters in Maranello, Italy, the exhibition tells the story of Michael Schumacher’s record-breaking F1 career which saw him win seven titles, 91 Grands Prix and 155 podiums.
The Hall of Victories displays some of the most important Ferrari single-seaters driven in his 11 years with Scuderia Ferrari, ranging from the F310 of 1996, with which Schumacher won three GPs in his first season with the Prancing Horse, to the F399 – the car that won the Constructors’ title in 1999 to set Formula 1’s oldest team off on an exceptional run of victories.
There is also the F1-2000 in which Schumacher secured Ferrari’s $first world title since Jody Scheckter 21 years before, plus the 248 F1 of 2006, in which he triumphed at the Chinese GP for his 72nd and final victory with Ferrari.
Fans will also be introduced to a lesser-known side of Schumacher, that of developer. After leaving Formula 1, the German driver 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 2008’s Ferrari California.
The Michael 50 exhibition, which has organised in partnership with the Keep Fighting Foundation, will run alongside two other displays – ‘Driven by Enzo’ and ‘Passion and Legend’.
