Schumacher gets his own turn in the 'Ring

What better way to immortalize one of the most prolific drivers in F1's history, than to name a fast, left-right hander in the man's home country? That's exactly what's going to happen before the German Grand Prix opens this July, where seven-time World Champion Michael Schumacher will have his name appended to a set of curves to be dubbed the "Schumacher S."

The corners are located on the Nurburgring's Grand Prix course, not to be confused with the Green Hell of folklore and fantasy.

This honor is partially due to Schumacher's German heritage, but also because the former Ferrari F1 pilot has the most wins at the Eifelland circuit, taking the pole in 1995, 2000, 2001, 2004 and during his last race there in 2006.
