Seven-times World Champion

It was no coincidence that Exclusive Line paints were given race circuit names. In the early 1990s the then 22-year-old Michael Schumacher had just begun his career and quickly became a megastar. When he stopped racing in 2013, he was the most successful driver of all time, with seven world championship titles to his name. Here are a few pictures of a great career.

  • Schumacher in autumn 1991 with Formula 1 chief Bernie Ecclestone (centre).

  • Schumacher won his first two world championships with Benetton-Ford. Here is the car with which he scooped his second title in 1995.

  • In 1996 Schumacher switched to Ferrari. In his first four years he won races, but had to leave the world championship title to other drivers.

  • From 2000 to 2004 Schumacher dominated the Formula 1 circuit and won five world championship titles in succession. In the 2004 season alone he won 13 out of 18 races.

  • After the 2006 season, Schumacher retired – but returned to Formula 1 in 2010 and continued driving for Mercedes for four years.

  • In 2013 Michael Schumacher finally retired from Formula 1.
