Michael Schumacher: The Red Baron

Schumacher, Michael: The Red Baron

Michael Schumacher, the Red Baron, is a seven-time Formula One world champion. He is quite simply the greatest driver the sport has ever seen, earning over $650 million in salary and endorsement deals, putting him on a par with superstar athletes such as David Beckham and Tiger Woods. By 2005 the German was the world's first billionaire athlete. It was in Germany that he won real hearts and powerful endorsements. A German investment firm once paid him $8 million over three years to wear their badges on his post-race cap. In recent years he has donated at least $50 million to third world causes, including $10 million for aid after the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake, surpassing donations of any other sports' person, most sports' leagues, many worldwide corporations, and even some countries.
