Michael Schumacher’s private memorabilia collection from his career as seven-time Formula One world champion is to go on public display from the end of next year, his management said Thursday.

“It is the heartfelt wish of Michael’s family that all interested fans get to see Michael’s collection,” his manager Sabine Kehm said in a statement.

Schumacher, 47, suffered severe head injuries in a skiing accident in 2013 and after months in a coma he was transferred to his home in Switzerland. He has not been seen in public since his accident and details of his health are unknown.

Details of the exhibition, which will range from his days in karting to becoming F1 champion, were also presented at a press conference in Berlin. It is to be hosted at Motorworld Cologne, on the site of a former airfield.

The exhibition is intended to be both a homage and a tribute to Schumacher’s followers “who accompanied him during his extraordinary career and still accompany him today,” Kehm said.

A Schumacher exhibition hosted by one of his long-term sponsors in Marburg opened in February this year and is scheduled to run to early 2018. The new exhibition is open-ended.
