Ferrari will celebrate Michael Schumacher’s 50th birthday by staging a special exhibition at their Maranello headquarters next month.

The display at the Ferrari Museum will open on January 3, to coincide with the German’s landmark birthday.

Schumacher, who hasn’t been seen in public since he suffered a severe head trauma following a skiing accident nearly five years ago, won five of his record seven Formula One world championships with Ferrari.

A statement on his social media channels read: ‘Michael has a special place in the history of Ferrari which is marked by its many Formula One records.

‘Between 1996 and 2006, he won five driver titles in a row (2000 to 2004) and made a significant contribution to the success of the Scuderia with six manufacturer titles in these years.

‘The rooms of the museum are decorated with images from the unforgettable years that the seven-time world champion gave to all at Ferrari, and have created a legend that is greater than ever in the hearts of all fans.’
