Michael Schumacher awarded Legion d’honneur

Formula 1 seven time World Champion Michael Schumacher has been on hand with a Legion d’honneur, the highest achievable honour in French, by country Prime Minister Francois Fillon. The collection of the award by the German is the second for a F1 individuality this April, as Lotus Team Principal Tony Fernandes was proud to be named an Officer of the Legion d’honneur earlier this month for his donation to the aviation industry.

Schumi was awarded on Thursday evening at Hotel Matignon in capital city Paris, joined by some guests with FIA President and former Ferrari Team Principal Jean Todt, who himself became a Grand Officer of the honour in January 2007.

“To find a relevant comparison, one has to return to the origins of Formula 1 and the legendary Juan Manuel Fangio – your only rival,” Fillon is quoted as saying in the French media, when speaking to Mercedes driver Schumacher.
