30 years ago Michael drives his first Formula 1 race
On the eve of his first race weekend in Formula 1, Michael Schumacher is not really fit, but he would never let it show. Michael remembers: "When I arrived at Spa that evening, I felt strangely restricted: like when you have this tunnel vision where you don't see anything anymore and only concentrate on the closest things." The "nearest things", as Michael calls it, worked so well that after that race weekend the pundits had a new name to watch out for: Michael Schumacher. He might go places.
Schumacher. The Official App
To celebrate Michael Schumacher’s 50th birthday on 3 January 2019, the Keep Fighting Foundation is giving him, his family and his fans a very special gift: the Official Michael Schumacher App, a virtual museum that honors the career of one of the most successful Formula 1 drivers in history in an unprecedented way.
MESSAGE FROM MICHAEL'S FAMILY
Still we receive wishes for Michael to get well soon every day, and still we are stunned by the sheer amount of sympathies. We can only always thank you for facing this fight together with him and us.
We remain confident and hope the best for Michael. Your strength is helping us to keep supporting him.
