Ferrari to celebrate Schumacher's 50th birthday with museum exhibition
An exhibition dedicated to Michael Schumacher will open at the Ferrari Museum for his 50th birthday on January 3.
The 'Michael 50' exhibition at the Scuderia's headquarters in Italy is in collaboration with the Keep Fighting Foundation, the charity set up after the German sustained severe head injuries in a skiing accident in December 2013.
Schumacher is the most successful driver in Ferrari's history, winning five successive Formula One drivers' titles between 2000 and 2004 as part of a career haul of seven.
A statement read: "The museum's rooms will look back over the memorable seasons that the seven-time world champion gifted to all Ferraristi, and that created a legend now bigger than ever in the hearts of all fans.
"The exhibition will also show Michael's crucial contribution to the development of extraordinary GT cars in his years at Maranello, as a driver and later as a consultant.
"It is intended both as a celebration and a mark of gratitude to the most successful Prancing Horse driver ever."
Michael has a special place in the history of Ferrari which is marked by its many Formula 1 records. Between 1996 and 2006, he won 5 driver titles in a row (2000 and 2004) and made a significant contribution to the success of the Scuderia with 6 manufacturer titles in these years pic.twitter.com/oMyxllW5nz— Michael Schumacher (@schumacher) December 17, 2018
