The Nurburgring circuit in Germany is to honour Michael Schumacher by naming one of their corners after the multiple World Champion. After winning on the track five times and winning a record seven titles, Nurburgring is naming the fast left and right switchback that follows the Dunlop hairpin the ‘Schumacher S’. Michael is often said as being one of the many people who have helped transform the circuit over the years, offering opinions from a drivers viewpoint on how the track should be shaped.
The circuit is often called Schumacher’s home track as it is closer to his home town of Kerpen than the Hockenheimring, that up until this season held the German Grand Prix. However, due to financial issues facing both tracks, Nurburgring will take over the German Grand Prix reigns and Michael is expected to attend this year and drive a lap of honour before the race.
I am very proud of this honour which they have given me. Michael Schumacher.
