Michael Schumacher 2019: German Legend’s Accomplishments to be Celebrated by Goodwood Festival of Speed in July
While Michael Schumacher hasn’t been seen in the racing grid for years, it doesn’t mean that those still zipping through it have forgotten about him. In fact, the German racer will be celebrated this coming July as it marks the 25th year of him winning his first title, MotorSport reported.
“We are delighted that the Goodwood Festival of Speed has chosen to celebrate Michael's career, in the year of his 50th birthday, and on the 25th anniversary of his first championship,” said Sabine Kehm, the spokesperson for the family. The event will be featuring the cars that Michael Schumacher drove during his heyday.
Those who will be behind the wheels of the vehicles are also top racers, with some of them being the rivals of the racing legend back in the day. Meanwhile, the legacy of Michael Schumacher is currently being upheld by his son, Mick. The 19-year-old is set to race for Ferrari tomorrow after the Bahrain Grand Prix.
It goes without saying that this means a lot for the young Schumacher as Ferrari has been his father’s team when he won five of his seven F1 titles. Mick previously said that he wants to follow in his father’s footsteps and understands that the path he has chosen will be a steep and grueling climb. But Michael Schumacher’s son has been exceptional with his journey so far, oftentimes displaying techniques on the grid that mirrors that of his old man.
Ferrari’s Mattia Binotto are among those that recognize Mick’s talent and said that their decision to include the young racer into their team was swayed by performance and not by name. With regards to Michael Schumacher’s health and his quest for recovery, there’s still no new development on this front. Corinna – the racing legend’s wife – said a few months ago that they’ll continue to keep Michael’s recovery private as the subject remains a sensitive matter for the family.
