  • Michael Schumacher is a German racing driver who won seven Formula One world championships. Schumacher entered Formula One with the Jordan racing team in 1991, qualifying seventh in his debut race at the Belgian Grand Prix. Following this race, he was signed by Benetton for the rest of the season. His first Grand Prix win came the following year at the same venue as his debut race. Schumacher won his first Formula One World Championship in 1994, a season in which he won eight races. His victory was controversial, as he was involved in a collision with fellow championship contender Damon Hill at the final race in Adelaide. Both drivers had to retire their cars which resulted in Schumacher securing the championship. He won his second championship the following year, winning nine races, and became the youngest double world champion at the time. Schumacher joined Ferrari in 1996. He finished third in the championship, winning three races, in a season dominated by the Williams team. His victory at the Spanish Grand Prix, which Schumacher won by 45 seconds, is noted as one of the great Formula One wet weather drives. In the 1997 season, Schumacher won five races but was disqualified from the championship after the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile concluded that he had deliberately collided with Jacques Villeneuve, his championship rival, at the European Grand Prix in Jerez. The following year, he won six races. Schumacher won his third world championship in 2000; the first for a Ferrari driver since 1979. He followed this with four consecutive championships from 2001 to 2004. During the 2001 season, at the Belgian Grand Prix, Schumacher won his 52nd Grand Prix, breaking Alain Prost's record for the most career Grand Prix wins. His 2002 season, in which he was on the podium in every race, included eleven race victories. The latter broke the record for the most wins in a single season. Schumacher surpassed this with thirteen race victories in 2004. His final Grand Prix win was at the 2006 Chinese Grand Prix; at the end of that season he retired from Formula One. Although he made a return to Formula One racing with Mercedes between 2010 and 2012, this did not result in any further victories. Schumacher contested 308 races in his career which included 91 Grand Prix wins; the majority of his race victories were for the Ferrari team with 72. His most successful circuit was Magny-Cours where he won eight times in his career. Schumacher's largest margin of victory was at the 1994 Brazilian Grand Prix, a race in which he lapped the field, and the smallest margin of victory was at the 2000 Canadian Grand Prix when he beat teammate Rubens Barrichello by 0.174 seconds.
