Michael Schumacher is Mr Formula 1, holding the record for most world championships (seven) and most Grand Prix victories (91).
His long career spanned 20 years, most of which were spent with Italian constructors: first at Benetton and then Ferrari. Schumi won two world titles and 19 Grands Prix with Benetton, but only after he took up the challenge at Maranello did his career really take off. It was at Ferrari that Michael went from being a great driver to a legendary one, winning 72 races and five consecutive world championships between 2000 and 2004.
In the year he turned 50 (on 3 January), La Gazzetta dello Sport wishes to celebrate the German’s long F1 adventure with an exhibition that includes two of the Italian cars that he drove to victory: the Benetton B195, which he used in 1995 when he won his second consecutive drivers’ championship and the first (and only) constructors’ title for Benetton, and the Ferrari F2002, in which Michael won his fifth world title and helped Ferrari claim their 12th constructors’ victory.
The exhibition has been designed by Aldo Drudi, with the aid of Paolo Buroni for artistic and multimedia communication.
The exhibition has been prepared together with the Ferrari Museum and the Benetton Archive, with the collaboration of Stark.
