Michael Schumacher Given Private Island By Crown Prince Of Dubai. No, Really.

December 11, 2008

Everyone's favorite former F1 driver has been getting along really well with Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Maybe a little too well.

The crowned prince of Dubai has just given Schumacher his own $7 million private island off the coast of Dubai. As a gift.


The plot of land is located on one of the many small, private islands situated in a cluster known as “The World”. Created by real estate group, Al Nakheel Properties, all 300 of The World’s islands have been specifically placed to resemble an aerial map of the world.  See, sucking up to your rich friends does pay off.
