Michael Schumacher took interest in racing at the age of four. His parents then took him to the local karting track at Kerpen-Horrem where he became the youngest member of the karting club. At the age of six, he won his first club championship. In 1983, upon obtaining his German license, a Michael Schumacher appearance at the German Junior Kart Championship won him the title. In 1984, Schumacher won several German and European kart championships. He also participated in the German Formula Ford and Formula König series, winning the latter.
Schumacher started competing in the German Formula 3 series in 1989 and won the title the following year. He also won the season finale at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez in a Sauber-Mercedes C11 and finished fifth in the drivers’ championship. He became part of Willi Weber’s WTS Formula 3 team, which won the final race of the season at Autopolis in Japan. In 1991 he competed in one race in the Japanese Formula 3000 Championship and finished second.
The first Michael Schumacher appearance on Formula One was with the Jordan-Ford team at the 1991 Belgian Grand Prix. After winning two championships with Benetton, Schumacher moved to Ferrari in 1996 and won five consecutive drivers’ titles with them from 2000 to 2004. He holds numerous records in Formula One, including most drivers’ championships, race victories, fastest laps, pole positions, points scored, and most races won in a single season. He is the first and only Formula One driver to have an entire season of podium finishes. In the latter part of his Formula One career, and as one of the senior drivers, Schumacher was named president of the Grand Prix Drivers’ Association.
