Michael Schumacher Facts

  1. When he was only 4 years old, his father modified his pedal kart by adding a small motorcycle engine. After he crashed his kart into a lamppost, his parents brought him to the karting track at Kerpen-Horrem, where he became the youngest member of the karting club.
  2. At the age of 6, he won his first club championship.
  3. His father took on a 2nd job renting and repairing karts to support Schumacher’s racing.
  4. Before fame and wealth, Schumacher was able to continue racing with the support that he was getting from local businessmen.
  5. With Germany’s regulation that requires a driver to be at age 14 to obtain a kart license, which was not ideal for him who needed to get a kart license below the given allowable age, Schumacher obtained his license in Luxembourg at the age of 12. In 1993, he finally got his German license which came a year after winning the German Junior Kart Championship.
  6. From 1984 onwards, he won many German and European kart championships. After he became the German and European kart champion in 1987, he left school and started working as a mechanic. In 1988, he made his single-seat car racing debut by joining the German Formula Ford and Formula König series, two of which he won later.
  7. In 1989, he signed with Willi Weber’s WTS Formula Three team.
  8. He made his Formula One debut with the Jordan-Ford team during the 1991 Belgian Grand Prix where he drove a car with number 32 as a replacement to Bertrand Gachot.
  9. He was well-praised all throughout his career due to his ability to produce fast laps at crucial moments while in a race and the ability to push his car to the very limit for sustained periods.
  10. In his later years as a Formula One race driver, he was one of the veterans and also served as the president of Grand Prix Driver’s Association.
  11. In a 2006 FIA survey, he was voted the most popular driver of the season by Formula One fans.
