His father, Rolf Schumacher was a bricklayer who took on multiple jobs like renting and repairing karts to support Michael’s racing. Throughout his career, he has shown exceptional accuracy and is known to commit very few mistakes, especially when the going gets tough in wet conditions. He made his Formula One debut with Jordan-Ford team in 1991, before shifting in the later part of the decade to Ferrari. For his time there, Schumacher has been credited for turning once struggling Ferrari in the most successful teams in Formula One history. He surprised hi fans when he announced his retirement from professional Formula F1 in 2006.

However he announced his comeback to the F1 circuit in 2009. Michael holds the records for most career wins (91), most wins in a season most career pole positions, most points during a season (148 in 2004), most consecutive world championships (5), most consecutive race wins (2004), most podium finishes (154), most laps leading, most fastest laps (76), plus several others.

In 2004, Forbes magazine listed him as the 2nd highest paid athlete in the world. In 2005, Eurobusiness magazine identified Schumacher as the world’s first billionaire athlete.
