The Bahrain Circuit has named a corner after Michael Schumacher, who remains in a medically induced coma after suffering head injuries in a skiing accident.
Schumacher was involved in designing the track, including the corner named in his honor. Bahrain International Circuit consulted Schumacher’s family about the idea to honor him and received the full support of the family.
“Michael’s family would like to thank the Bahrain International Circuit for this gesture, acknowledging Michael’s achievements in Formula 1 and interest in the BIC circuit design,” said Schumacher’s manager, Sabine Kehm. “We take it as a recognition for his passion for motorsport. I am convinced Michael will love the idea and feel very honoured about having a BIC corner named after him.”
