Nurburgring honour for Michael Schumacher 26 Mar 2007

Michael Schumacher (GER) Ferrari 248 F1.
Formula One World Championship, Rd 5, European Grand Prix, Race, Nurburgring, Germany, 7 May 2006

Michael Schumacher is to have a section of the famous Nurburgring circuit named after him ahead of this year’s German Grand Prix. Schumacher won at the track five times during his illustrious Formula One career.

The ‘Schumacher S’ (formerly the ‘Audi S’) is a fast left-right section midway around the Nurburgring lap. The seven-time world champion will get another chance to sample the corner when he completes a special lap of honour before the 2007 German Grand Prix on July 22.
