A corner at Nurburgring will be named ‘Schumacher S’ in honour of Michael Schumacher, who was victorious at the Nurburgring circuit a total of five times. The track itself will host the 2007 German GP later in the summer.
‘I am very proud of this honour which they have given me,’ said Schumacher, who retired after the 2006 season. ‘It was imperative we did something prestigious to honour him,’ said Walter Kaffitz, director of the race track. ‘Schumacher is the greatest driver in the history of German motorsport.’
Schumacher will do a lap of honour before the start of the German GP on 22 July, the first driver to do so.
