Michael Schumacher celebrates a major milestone at the Spa-Francorchamps race in Belgium this weekend, marking 20 years since he made his Formula One grand prix debut, on the circuit he calls his living room.

Schumacehr is Formula One's most successful driver with 91 wins and 68 pole positions.

The German didn't complete a race lap with the struggling Jordan team back in 1991 retiring with a clutch problem, having qualified seventh fastest.

He had his first win at Spa a year later with Bennetton, going on to enjoy five more victories at Spa.
