Bahrain names corner after Schumacher

Bahrain Grand Prix organizers will name the Sakhir track's first corner in honor of Michael Schumacher.

"With the support of his family, it is a great privilege to be able to honor arguably the greatest racing driver in the history of F1 and someone who the people of Bahrain hold close to their hearts," said Al Zayani.

"From his first appearance at the BIC in 2004, he immediately became an inspiration for all those who love motorsport in the Kingdom and it is therefore natural for us to recognize him in this way.

"The team at the BIC continues to offer Michael and his family its best wishes."

His manager Sabine Kehm added: "Michael's family would like to thank the Bahrain International Circuit for this gesture, acknowledging Michael's achievements in Formula 1 and interest in the BIC circuit design.

"We take it as a recognition for his passion for motorsport.

"I am convinced Michael will love the idea and feel very honored about having a BIC corner named after him."
