Google Earth Plug-in: Michael Schumachers Island

Info Map Comments (2) Related Files


Michael Schumacher received an unique and unprecedented parting gift after his last Grand Prix in Brazil -- an island.

Dubai's crown prince - Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum - reportedly decided to give the retiring German a piece of the man-made island paradise 'The World', located off the coast of the United Arab Emirates.

'The World' is 300 islands clustered together in a nine kilometre zone to resemble Earth from an aerial photo.

Schumacher's island, apparently part of 'Antarctica' on the artificial globe, is worth about (US) $7 million.

Schumacher's manager Willi Weber confirmed: "In a couple of years it will be finished. Then Michael and Corinna will have their own holiday island!

"Perhaps he will build a kart track on it."
