Michael Schumacher is now represented on social media after an official page was launched on race day in Brazil for fans to share thoughts, images and memories of F1's statistically greatest driver ever.

The message on the page says: "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.

"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 won the first of his seven F1 world championships in Adelaide on this day 22 years ago.

He suffered severe head injuries in a skiiing accident in December 2013 and although he came out of a long coma he remains unable to move and his exact condition is kept a closely guarded secret by his manager Sabine Kehm and the Schumacher family.

Mick Schumacher

Schumacher's son Mick is making his way up the racing ladder and has competed in Formula 4 this season, finishing second in the Italian and German championships. He is likely to race in FIA F3 next season, the series that produced Max Verstappen, Esteban Ocon and Lance Stroll.

He made a very public appearance at the German Grand Prix this year in Hockenheim and the pathway is clearly being prepared for him to rise to F1 in the next two to three years.
