His parents enrolled him at a karting club and became the youngest member. His father had to find a second job/ work while his mother worked rigorously at the canteen of the track to support his early racing years. When Michael needed a new engine worth 800 DM, his parents have no sufficient means to provide for if. Luckily, he was able to get the support of the local businessmen.

The marriage was blessed with two wonderful children: a girl and a boy. Michael was very protective of his familyís private life.

The Schumacherís luxurious family mansion has a private beach located near Lake Geneva with an underground gas station and garage.
