Schumacher invites paddock to mark 20th anniversary

Michael Schumacher has invited members of the F1 paddock to a party to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his Grand Prix debut.

When the seven time world champion arrives at Spa-Francorchamps in less than ten days, it will be two decades since he made his debut at the same famous circuit for Jordan in 1991.

We reported last month that Schumacher, now 42 and the record holder of seven titles and 91 wins, will mark the occasion with a special black and gold cap.

And the German revealed to reporters at Mercedes’ Stuttgarter Sternstunden event at the weekend that he has organised a party.

“It will be a special moment for me,” Cologne newspaper Express quotes him as saying. “I will invite the whole paddock for a drink on Saturday evening.”
