Schumi Set To Get Back Behind The Wheel Of An F1 Car

Formula One’s most successful driver, Michael Schumacher, will pilot an F1 car next month for a demonstration with Mercedes.

The seven time world champion came out of retirement in 2010 with Mercedes where he spent three years. Now, the 44-year-old will drive Germany’s famous Nurburgring Nordschleife in his 2011 MGP Wo2, on May 19th.

“I have a lot of fond memories of the Nurburgring and am really looking forward to giving fans and friends from my home town of Kerpen – which is quite close to the Nurburgring – something to remember as they see me drive by” Schumacher said.

“But it will be a fantastic experience for me too, driving along the Nordschleife in a state-of-the-art Formula One Silver Arrow, particularly in view of the fact that the Silver Arrow’s legend began here. 

“Posting a lap in a modern Silver Arrow on the most beautiful and most testing circuit in the world, what a brilliant mix – it’s every motor racing driver’s dream!”
