German racing legend Michael Schumacher will move with his family to a new house on the Spanish island of Majorca. The Formula 1 icon will move to a mansion in the town of Andratx. Andratx boasts of an estimated population of just 11,000.
Schumacher’s wife Corinna purchased the property for around €30million earlier this year. It is said that the mansion was previously owned by Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez. The mansion also includes an estate that measures 161,000 square feet.
This piece of news will undoubtedly spark fresh interest on the condition of the seven-time F1 champion. Michael has not been seen publicly ever since he suffered serious injuries in a skiing accident in 2013.
Schumacher was placed into a six-month coma and has been recovering at home in Switzerland since September 2014.
However, it now seems that he is fit enough to make the journey to Spain.
“I can officially confirm that Michael Schumacher will come to settle in our community and that everything is set up here to welcome him,” said Andratx mayor, Katia Rouarch.
According to certain sources, local authorities are prepared for Schumacher’s arrival. Michael has taken a record-breaking 91 grand prix wins in his career.
However, it is unclear if the Spanish mansion will be a permanent residence or a summer home for the Schumacher family.
