Soon to be $$$ billionaire MS?

Post by darwin dali »

He revealed: "Most of our existing partners will stay with us, and we will also be working on the next super deals."

Personal sponsors DVAG, Shell and Omega have already renewed their deals with 37-year-old Schumacher.



The Sunday newspaper also reckoned that, even from his mansion in countryside Switzerland, Schumacher could earn more in 2007 - up to $26 million in total - than his brother Ralf, World Champion Fernando Alonso and Ferrari replacement Kimi Raikkonen.

His total fortune has reportedly surpassed $800m.



Let's see: his F1 career lasted for 15 years. $800m divided by 15 equals about $53m. He will have 247 races under his belt, which translates into $3.2m per race. Mind you, during his first, what? 5 years, he didn't earn that much, thus realistically, the bulk of his money was earned during the last 10 years in roughly 170 races. It's just insane! And apparently there's no end in sight, so the $1b mark is not out of the question.

F1's retiring Michael Schumacher may have amassed an estimated fortune of $800 million, but according to BusinessF1 magazine, he also donates substantial sums to charity.

The magazine said Ferrari's 37-year-old donated a total of $50 million over the last four years, after several undisclosed hand-outs were uncovered in German public records.

As well as donating $5.6m to UNESCO and $10m to the Asian tsunami fund, Schumacher reportedly funded hospitals in Bosnia, orphanages in Peru and schools in Senegal.



The CNN-IBN publication, meanwhile, has found that he is the greatest sportsperson of the modern era, after a poll put Schumacher ahead of Roger Federer (42% of the vote) and Tiger Woods (9%).

The German scored 49 percent
