The 51-year-old was skiing with his son Mick back in December of 2013 when he fell and hit his head, which left him with a serious injury despite wearing a ski helmet.
(Jean Todt Schumacher Health) – On the weekend when Ferrari celebrates their 1000th Grand Prix, Michael Schumacher is of course also in everyone’s thoughts. The German who gave Ferrari their greatest successes is still fighting to overcome the injuries of his skiing accident.
Schumacher fell while skiing at the end of 2013, was in a coma for a long time and eventually suffered severe brain damage. At the request of the family, the exact situation after seven years is never known, but Jean Todt still sees him regularly.
SCHUMACHER IS A FIGHTER
“I saw Michael last week,” says the President of the FIA to the press agency PA. “He is fighting,” adds the former Ferrari team boss. Together with Schumacher, he was responsible for no less than seven world titles for Ferrari at the beginning of this century.
“My God, we know he had a terrible and unfortunate skiing accident which has caused him a lot of problems. But he has an amazing wife next to him, he has his kids, his nurses, and we can only wish him the best and to wish the family the best, too.”
Todt said of his records: “Lewis will beat all of Michael’s records simply because he is a very talented driver.
“He is motivated and driving for the best team. He has the best car, the best engine so all the ingredients are there.
“It is positive logic that when you do so well in life you get the benefit of it, and that is what is happening with Lewis and Mercedes.
“We thought the records would be very difficult to beat, but a long stability of the regulations has helped them.
“Clearly both are completely different, but they have a common passion, professionalism, physical condition, talent and that is what makes both of them outstanding.”
