Michael Schumacher recieves a piece of The World by Dubai Prince

Schumi is a proud owner of a piece of the man-made island paradise ‘The World’, located off the coast of the United Arab Emirates. Priced at a whopping $7 million, the island is Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum parting gift after his last Grand Prix in Brazil. Schumacher’s island is believed to be a part of ‘Antarctica’ on the artificial globe. Schumacher’s manager Willi Weber confirmed: “In a couple of years it will be finished. Then Michael and Corinna will have their own holiday island! May be he’ll consider building his own racing track there.

‘The World’ is 300 islands clustered together in a nine kilometre zone to resemble Earth from an aerial photo.
