'Michael 50', Schumacher exhibition opens at Ferrari Museum

There are also the F2002, F2004, and the 248 F1 from 2006 which was driven to victory at the Chinese Grand Prix in what was Schumacher's 72nd, and final, victory with the Prancing Horse.

Running alongside two other exhibits - Driven by Enzo and Passion and Legend - Michael 50 brings together in the museum's Hall of Victories a few of Schumacher's most iconic race cars.

More than five years after a near-fatal brain injury in a skiing accident, the seven-time F1 champion continues to be cared for in total secrecy at home in the quiet Swiss town of Gland on the shores of Lake Geneva.

"We are very happy to celebrate Michael's 50th birthday tomorrow together with you and thank you from the bottom of our hearts that we can do this together", the statement continued.

"Michael is one of the founding fathers of the success we have had in the last five years".

According to a report in BBC, the family said that the former Ferrari driver is "in the very best of hands" and that they're "doing everything humanly possible to help him".

"Michael has always been a very private person and that's been a guiding principle in his career, his life and his family always agreed with that choice".

Schumacher made his debut with Jordan in 1991, before joining Benetton, where he won back-to-back drivers' championships in 1994 and 1995. "Not only did he set an incredible record - a record that is yet to be beaten - but he also shaped and changed the sport forever", Mercedes team Principal and CEO, Toto Wolff, said.

"He (Schumacher) did everything with great determination, from his engineering debriefs to his physical training, and was always searching for new ways to improve his on-track performance", Wolff added.

Ferrari, with whom Schumacher won five drivers' titles in a row, marked the German's birthday by opening a special exhibition in his honor at their headquarters in Maranello.

Schumacher's daughter Gina also published a short message to her Instagram page, writing: "Happy Birthday to the best dad", accompanied with three pictures.

91 - race wins, from 306 starts - he remains 18 clear of second-placed Lewis Hamilton on the all-time list.

The app features extensive details about his father's glittering career, as well as stats about his podium finishes and the various cars he drove. He originally retired in 2006 but returned three years later.
