“Michael 50” is a great success
Following the resounding success in terms of visitor numbers and the enthusiastic response of fans, the Ferrari Museum has extended the “Michael 50″ Schumacher exhibition dedicated to the sports star until 30th April.
The exhibition, which opened on 3 January (the champion’s 50th birthday) tells the story of his extraordinary career and unparalleled record in the history of F1.
The Hall of Victories assembles some of the most important Ferrari single-seaters driven by Schumacher during his eleven years with the Scuderia: from the F310 of 1996, in which Schumacher won three GPs in his first season with the Prancing Horse, to the F399, the car that won the Constructors’ title in 1999, marking the beginning of an exceptional winning streak. Also present is the F1-2000 of the legendary “Alba Rossa” (Red Dawn) in Suzuka, in which Michael secured Ferrari its first world title since Jody Scheckter 21 years before.Then of course there are the record-breaking F2002 and F2004 cars, and the 248 F1 of 2006, in which Schumacher won his 72nd and final victory with Ferrari.
The exhibition also reveals a lesser-known side of the star, as a developer of road cars. Indeed, after leaving Formula 1, the German champion remained at Ferrari, not only as a Scuderia consultant, but also in order to contribute to the development of various road cars, including the 430 Scuderia of 2007 and the Ferrari California of 2008.
“Michael 50″ is organised in partnership with the Keep Fighting Foundation, and runs alongside the other Ferrari Museum exhibitions: “Driven by Enzo” and “Passion and Legend”.
