Michael Schumacher will invite members of the Formula 1 paddock to a party to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of his Grand Prix debut during the Belgian Grand Prix weekend.
The upcoming Belgian Grand Prix will mark two decades since the 42-year-old made his Grand Prix debut, a single appearance with the Jordan outfit before he was snaffled up be Benetton for the next round at Monza.
The rest, as they say, is history. Schumacher would go on to claim seven World Championship titles and 91 Grand Prix victories with Benetton and Ferrari before he made a temporary retirement at the end of 2006, returning to the sport last year with Mercedes GP.
“It will be a special moment for me,” he told Cologne’s Express newspaper. “I will invite the whole paddock for a drink on Saturday evening.”
