Michael Schumacher island

The record-breaking Formula 1 driver has his own private retreat in the famous artificial Dubai islands - that's right, his own ISLAND.

Designed to be shaped as a map of the world, Schumacher owns a portion of the "Antarctic" section of the 300-island complex artificially constructed in the waters around the Emirate.

And the best thing about Schumacher's island - it was given to him for free!

Reportedly worth around $7m, the German driving ace was presented with it as a gift from the Dubai Crown Prince - not a bad retirement present.
