Schumacher made honorary citizen

Maranello, the town in Northern Italy famous for being the home of the Prancing Horse factory and F1 team, has made Michael Schumacher an honorary citizen. Although Schumacher was born in the Kerpen, Germany and is currently a Swiss resident, the mayor of Maranello, Lucia Bursi, has granted Schumacher the honour because of his career and contribution to Ferrari.

“With his fantastic sporting career, Schumacher was part of a very important section of Maranello’s history. With this gesture, we would like to say ‘thank you’ to him.”
