Schumacher 50th birthday to be marked with Ferrari exhibition

Wednesday, 19 december 2018, 08:23 , by Matthew Scott

Ferrari have planned an exhibition at the team's Maranello base to commemorate the 50th birthday of iconic Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher. Five of the German's seven world titles, and 72 of his 91 grand prix triumphs, were secured in Scuderia scarlet.

Schumacher will turn 50 on January 3rd, although his birthday has become a time of solemn reflection for motorsport fans as he continues to recover from traumatic brain injuries sustained in a skiing fall in 2013.

The German has not been seen publicly since then and has remained at his Swiss home since emerging from a coma four years ago.

Images and memorabilia from his career-defining period on red will be on display at Maranello.

The exhibition is being held in partnership with the Keep Fighting Foundation – established by Schumacher's wife Corinna after his accident.
