Bahrain F1 Circuit Names Corner After Michael Schumacher

Bahrain International Formula 1 Circuit may be suffering from the constant threat of getting dropped by F1 officials due to security reasons, as a result of occasional civil unrest, but they just surprised the fans by naming a corner after Michael Schumacher, who is still in medically-induced coma showing no signs of getting better.   

Michael Schumacher suffered a severe head injury while skiing in France a few days before the 2014 Christmas. The doctors had to put him in a medically-induced coma to preserve his life. But as Michaels enter his third month on the life support machine, efforts to wake him up are failing and the doctors are running out of options.

Michael Schumacher, the seven-time Formula 1 world champion and a complete legend, is in a stage now where only the prayers of his millions of fans can save him. So it was a very nice gesture by Bahrain International circuit to name a corner after him, as a reminder that Michael’s race isn’t over yet.

BIC officials consulted Schumacher’s family about the idea and received their full support. Michael has been involved in the development of Bahrain’s track and would certainly approve of this.

“Michael’s family would like to thank the Bahrain International Circuit for this gesture, acknowledging Michael’s achievements in Formula 1 and interest in the BIC circuit design,” said Schumacher’s manager, Sabine Kehm. “We take it as a recognition for his passion for motorsport. I am convinced Michael will love the idea and feel very honoured about having a BIC corner named after him.”
