While everyone hopes to see the legend recover as soon as humanly possible, it is unclear how his injuries are being healed. To the best of our understanding, the injuries sustained by Schumacher during his accident are complicated, and only time and medical attention will decide the future of the man that won 91 Formula 1 races and obtained 69 pole positions in his career.

In the meantime, Michael Schumacher’s family has decided that the fans of the driver would like to see his private collection of racing memorabilia.

The exhibits have not been publicly displayed before, so this announcement is a breakthrough for the fans of the driver affectionately called Schuey by F1 fans and commentators.

The exhibition will be set near Schumacher’s hometown of Kerpen, which is in Germany. As Formula 1 notes, this will be a permanent display.

Many elements of Schumacher’s career will be exhibited, from the karts that he raced before he became a household name, to sports cars, trophies, and Formula 1 cars.

Schumacher’s family has expressed its desire to keep the exhibition free of any admission charge. According to Sabine Kehm, the manager of the seven-time world champion, this will enable the fans of Michael to bring back the great times of the German driver, along with reliving the excitement created by his success.

The exhibition will be established at the Motorworld Koln-Rheinland Classic Car Center, which is near Kerpen, the hometown of the legendary driver.

It is worth noting that the position of the center, located in the German city of Koln, will make it easy for Dutch and Belgian fans to visit this center. The representatives of the German driver have announced it will be ready for its first visits by the end of 2017.

Along with Schumacher’s cars and memorabilia, Motorworld will also exhibit the Benetton-Ford B194-5, Schumacher’s 1994 season car, which belongs to the the German company’s collection since 2013.
