    To the greatest ever pilot of the Ferrari Scuderia, best wishes on your half century on 3rd January 2019. The last few years have no doubt been the toughest ever for you and your family, but the whole of the Ferrari tifosi wish you the best at this juncture, and hope one day to see you engaged once again in the worldwide stage

    Forza Michael

    Happy Birthday, Michael - I will never forget all the memorable moments you gave us from 1996 until 2006 - especially the most personal one for me, which was your victory at Nürburgring in 2000. I watched and celebrated this one with my dad before leaving his house, not knowing that these would be the last moments I would ever enjoy with him again. Less than 24 hours late he passed away... I will always link those final hours together to the joy of watching how you gave this victory to the Scuderia. Still makes me smile when remembering it 18 years later. GRAZIE for everything!!!

    Thanks for sharing Thomas.... I’m betting there are many of us with similar personal links that remind us of times in our life, accompanied by the exploits of our heroes. For me, I remember vividly a telephone conversation with my cousin who was at the track in imola when senna lost his life, the whole paddock was crying in the background of the call and he was with the ferrari team in the garages, the disbelief at the loss of senna was immense. Later, I remember parts of my life interlinking with some of michaels victories, and of course his own personal tragedies that struck during times when the team was at its peak...

    Your legacy endures and reaches across the pond. My youngest is smitten by the magic of the red cars and continues to be impressed while learning of your achievements. Her reading, learning, watching, and discussing has given me an opportunity to enjoy them all over again.

    "The more precisely I can drive, the more I enjoy myself"

    Merry Christmas, Happy New Year,

    and Happiest of Birthdays Michael!!

    I was at the maranello museum this past July. In the F1 room I knelt down in front of two cars so my wife could take my picture. When I stood up and got a good look at the name on the intake it was Schumacher. I got emotional and had to excuse my self to the bathroom.
    Happy birthday Mr. Schumacher

    The Ferrari Museum in Maranello is dedicating a special exhibition to Michael Schumacher, which will open on the occasion of his 50th birthday on 3 January 2019. It is both a celebration and a sign of gratitude to the most successful driver of all time of the Cavallino Rampante.

    Great poster.

    5 years of mystery.
    -----------------------------

    Yesterday was the fifth anniversary of the serious ski accident suffered by the F1 Heptacampeon. Micheal is since September 2014 is in its House of Gland without knowing anything about its state of health.
    Family life has become a rehabilitation clinic. That was his situation until 16 June 2014. His family had left the coma and would continue to be attempted by a clinic in Lausanne.

    Very brave of the family, must be pretty heart wrenching to write such statements with Michael as he is

    I just downloaded the app from the App Store (Apple). It is highly recommended.

    Forza Schumi!
