Michael Schumacher Receives $7 Million Island from Prince of Dubai
As if having six towers with his name on them all over the world weren't rewarding enough for his World Championship victories in the F1 series, Dubai’s crown prince Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum thought of gifting Michael Schumacher with his own $7 million dollar private island.
Schumi's island is situated off the coast of Jumeirah, Dubai in a cluster of isles known as “The World”.
As the group claims “An array of island parcels means an array of possibilities. Engineered to be flexible and designed to be unforgettable - a blank canvas in the azure waters of the Arabian Gulf. An incomparable destination.”
Now speaking about record-breaking Formula 1 driver's plot of land, his island is located in the southern hemisphere of “Antarctica”. Although this might not be exactly his favorite region in the world and perhaps he would have preferred “Germany” instead but who can dare make wry faces to such a generous gift? You know, no hard feelings but there are children who are starving in Africa...
