An official Instagram account has been opened up to mark the anniversary of Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher’s first world championship.

Schumacher raced in F1 from 1991 until 2006 and from 2010 to 2012, finishing his career as statistically the greatest driver in the sport’s history.

Schumacher won his first world title at the 1994 Australian Grand Prix, which took place 22 years ago today.

To mark the occasion, an official Instagram account has been set up that will be sharing memories from Schumacher’s career.

“Welcome everyone to Michael’s paddock! We love to share memories with you and what better start could there be than the upcoming anniversary of Michael’s first world championship title,” a message on the account reads.

“From November 13 this page will be our meeting place to collect and exchange memories and to celebrate Michael’s many achievements, established as a thank you gesture to all you wonderful fans.”

Schumacher is currently continuing his recovery from severe head injuries sustained in a skiing accident in December 2013, with the most recent update confirming that the German is unable to walk following false claims made in the media.
