On Board With A Young Michael Schumacher At The 1991 Spanish Grand Prix

Michael Schumacher owns just about all the important records in Formula 1. Among which include the most wins and championships of all time. He is a legend, but even legends have to start somewhere. In 1991 Schumacher was just a 22 year old rookie. In only his 4th race he showed that he was indeed a force to be reckoned with. The site was Circuit de Catalunya. Catalunya was new to the F1 calendar, replacing Jarez as the site for the Spanish Grand Prix. At the start of the race in slick conditions Schumacher passed the likes of Nigel Mansel and Ayrton Senna. We didn’t know it but we were witnessing the birth of a legend.
