Michael Schumacher

Dec.3 (Grand Prix 247) On 3 December 1969 Michael Schumacher was born in Hürth, North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany and today he celebrates his 43rd anniversary – from all at YallaF1.com we wish him a happy birthday.

Schumacher is the oldest driver currently racing in Formula 1, having started racing karts at the age of six. Since then he has etched his name in the history of motorsport by breaking just about every F1 record on his way to claiming seven world titles, 91 wins, 154 podiums out of 287 starts.

Schumacher spent 2007 to 2009 in ‘retirement’ before accepting a deal to return to the F1 scene with Mercedes GP who he has raced for since and will do in 2012 and perhaps even in 2013.
