Michael Schumacher

While we have sympathy for Ferrari Formula One injured driver Felipe Massa, we are very exited to see 7-time world champion Michael Schumacher return to the race track. According to reports coming out of Germany, Schumacher is to get almost $1 million per race.

In addition to the $1 million, Schumacher is to get the same amount as a bonus for each victory.

The former Formula One champion already gets close to $6 million per year from his Ferrari advisory role, which is scheduled to be extended beyond the end of 2009.

“I’m currently in the midst of my preparations for the upcoming race,” Schumacher said on his website. “I already lost three kilograms even if it is also important to me to build up muscles. So all in all, the practice works pretty well.
