Taxi for Schumacher

A taxi driver in Germany was left shaken and stirred after handing his keys over to seven-times Formula One champion Michael Schumacher. Schumacher, 38, asked to take the wheel as he was running late for a flight.

“I found myself a passenger, which was strange enough, but having ‘Schumi’ behind the wheel was incredible,” said taxi driver Tuncer Yilmaz.

“He drove at full throttle around the corners and overtook in some unbelievable places.”


Schumacher had flown into the Bavarian town of Coburg to pick up an Australian Shepherd dog called Ed.

He was accompanied by his wife and children to pick up the puppy and the family were late getting back to the local aerodrome for their return flight.

After giving the cabbie an unforgettable experience, Schumacher also gave him a 100 Euro tip.

The dog will be the latest addition to the Schumacher family menagerie, which includes one dog that he brought home from Brazil when his wife Corinna fell for it as it wandered around as a stray while they were at the Grand Prix in Sao Paulo.
