The world of Formula 1 has come together to celebrate Michael Schumacher on the seven-time world champion’s 51st birthday.

The German great has not been seen in public for more than five years after suffering brain injuries in a skiing accident, but his impact on the sport remains strong – as evidenced by the weight of tributes posted.

Ferrari, the team synonymous with the bulk of Schumacher’s greatest F1 successes were quick to mark his birthday, as were Mercedes, with whom he brought the curtain down on his racing career in 2012.

Here we round up the tributes paid to F1’s ultimate star, while everyone at GPFans wishes Michael and his family the very best for 2020.

To help celebrate Schumacher’s birthday, we thought we’d have a flashback to the year Schumacher was born.

Back then, there were just 11 races on the F1 calendar and the season was wrapped up by the October 19. The season started with the South African Grand Prix in Kyalami. Sir Jackie Stewart led all 80 laps to get his championship-winning season off to the perfect start. The Matra Ford Cosworth went on to win five out of the first six races with victories in Spain, Netherlands, France and Britain to follow.

The 1969 Monaco Grand Prix was the only race in the opening six which Stewart failed to win. The British legend started from pole position and led for 22 laps until his car broke down. Fellow Brit Graham Hill took the lead and went on to win the race. Stewart comfortably won the championship despite scoring just three points in the final three races while his closest rival Jacky Ickx picked up two podiums.

In 1969, there were four races not to count towards the F1 world championship. Three of these took place in Britain, while the other occurred in Spain’s Madrid. Stewart and Ickx both won one race each while there were also wins for Jack Brabham and Keith Holland.
