28 Mar Schumacher Display
From 16 June 2018 onwards, The Michael Schumacher Private Collection, including cars, race-worn helmets and other memorabilia from his F1 days, will be displayed at an old airport in the Germany city of Cologne. Schumacher’s family fiercely protects his privacy after a near-fatal brain injury in a skiing accident, and the current condition of the 49-year-old German’s health remains closely guarded. However, his reputation still towers over F1, and fans of all ages continue to adore him.
Six years ago Schumacher began the last season of his F1 career at the Australian GP in Melbourne. He secured the last of his mammoth 155 podiums that year at the European GP in Valencia on 24 June 2012, before retiring definitively at the age of 43. He is being cared for at his home in the quiet Swiss town of Gland on the shores of Lake Geneva.
