A living legend, master – Michael Schumacher.
I am a fan of Formula 1 racing. When I had F1 game for my PS1, I always was eager to ride with Michael Schumacher. Today I am going to write about one of my childhood heroes F1 race driver Michael Schumacher. Even riding a car is fantastic and imagine now riding a car with more that 300 kilometres per hour! Sounds like cool, does not it? Generally, F1 can be considered one of the highest podiums for lots of race drivers. And lots of them are trying to reach to this high podium. I am a Ferrari fan of F1 due to Schumacher. He is one of the best drivers of all time and today Ferrari lacks a driver in his ability, because only legendary drivers can stop the hegemony of Mercedes, because their cars are best.
Michael Schumacher was born on 3 Janurary, 1969, Hurth, Western Germany. He joined to the kart club and became the youngest member at that time. When he was only 6, he won the club championship! Then Schumacher got also licence in the age of 12 and won many German and European cart championships. He continued to win also German drivers’ championships Formula Konig and Formula Three. Then in 1991, he joined to one of the Formula 1 teams Jordan and began to compete in this championship. Then he would have such an amazing career. He had broken lots of records such as most career wins(91), most wins in a season(shares with another German Vettel, 13), most consecutive championships(5), most podium finishes(154), most fastest laps(76), etc. He is a seven time Wolrd Champion which is a record and it is very,very,very difficult but not impossible to break this record and add new one. Alsi it is necessary to mention that he got his two championships with Benetton(1994, 1995) and others with Ferrari(2000,2001,2002,2003,2004). Fernando Alonso was the person who ended this magnificent championship streak. He retired in 2006 and worked for several roles for Ferrari, and made his surprise comeback in 2010. But this comeback was not succesful one and unfortunately, Michael Schumacher was not even closer to the title race. He retired second time in 2012.
Schumacher had a terrible skiing incident in 29 December, 2013. He was in a very terrible condition got several hard hits to his head, despite wearing a helmet. Probably, helmet saved his life. And Schumacher even today has not recovered full yet, and I hope and with my full heartly wish that my childhood hero, one of the best of all time race drivers will recover soon. Thanks, Schumi, for flourishing sport and giving to the whole world eternal pleasure for watcing to your racing skills, abilities, craftship and breaking records! Danke, Schumi! 🙂
Now let’s take a look at how Schumacher overtook Mika Hakkinen in 1998 and relive this adrenaline. 🙂
