For yet another significant moment in Michael Schumacher’s career, the venue is ironically Spa-Francorchamps. To mark the German’s 300th Grand Prix weekend, the Mercedes driver has traded in his customary red helmet for a platinum design.
Although Belgium 2012 will not mark Schumacher’s 300th Grand Prix start, it does confirm his 300th attendance as an entrant at an F1 race. Previously, only former team-mate Rubens Barrichello had hit such a figure after bypassing Ricardo Patrese’s 257.
Other noteworthy Schumacher-Spa facts include his F1 debut for Jordan in 1991, a career-first win for Benetton in 1992, the collection of his seventh world title for Ferrari in 2004 and the 20th anniversary of his debut which was celebrated across last year’s race weekend.
Qualifying in Belgium with Mercedes has never gone well for Schumacher, but he has more than delivered on the race days of 2010 and 2011; he stormed through the field on both occasions, to seventh and fifth places in the two respective seasons.
