About Michael Schumacher
Michael Schumacher (German pronunciation: ˈmɪçaʔeːl ˈʃuːmaxɐ) (born 3 January 1969, in Hürth-Hermülheim, West Germany) is a German Formula One driver and seven-time Formula One world drivers' champion. After a career spanning 1991–2006 with Jordan, Benetton and Ferrari, he announced a comeback for 2010 with Mercedes GP. According to the official Formula One website, he is "statistically the greatest driver the sport has ever seen". He is the only German to win the Formula One World championship, and is credited with popularizing Formula One in Germany. In a 2006 FIA survey, Michael Schumacher was voted the most popular driver of the season among Formula One fans.After winning two championships with Benetton, Michael Schumacher moved to Scuderia Ferrari in 1996 and won five consecutive drivers' titles with them from 2000–2004. Schumacher holds many records in Formula One, including most drivers' championships, race victories, fastest laps, pole positions, points scored and most races won in a single season. Schumacher is the only Formula One driver to have an entire season of podium finishes, a feat he accomplished in 2002. His driving sometimes created controversy: he was twice involved in collisions that determined the outcome of the world championship, most notably his disqualification from the 1997 championship for causing a collision with Jacques Villeneuve. After the 2006 Formula One season Schumacher retired from race driving, and became an advisor for Ferrari. Schumacher planned to return to F1 racing for the 2009 European Grand Prix as a replacement for injured Ferrari driver Felipe Massa. However, it then became apparent that he was not fit enough to race due to a neck injury he sustained during a German Superbike test earlier in the year. On 23 December 2009 Mercedes confirmed that Schumacher had signed a contract to drive alongside Nico Rosberg in 2010. Off the track, Schumacher is an ambassador for UNESCO and a spokesman for driver safety. He has been involved in numerous humanitarian efforts throughout his life and donated tens of millions of dollars to charity. He is the elder brother of former F1 driver Ralf Schumacher, who currently races in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM). They stand as the only brothers in F1 history to have both won races and they scored the first sibling 1-2 finish in Formula One.
