The former president of the FIA and team boss to Ferrari during the Michael Schumacher years has confided to the German media about the former Formula 1 seven time champion.
Jean Todt, former Ferrari boss, has revealed that Michael Schumacher, who suffered a serious skiing accident, has not lost his passion for cars. On the 29th December 2013, the seven-time Formula One world champion suffered a terrible fall whilst skiing, slipping on a patch of ice before hitting a rock with his head. Today, there is little information about Michael Schumacher’s condition, although some privileged people still visit him, including Todt.
“I don’t miss Michael, I can see him. But of course, what I miss is what we used to do together,” said Todt in an interview with German TV channel NTV.
“It’s true that I still watch F1 races with him.”
And if he spends time with the seven-time world champion, he also spends time with his family confirming that “Michael is […] very special,” he said.
“Corinna, Mick and Gina have also become special to me. They have all become family to me, to my wife and to my son.”
On the 21st of July, as Corinna Schumacher and her daughter Gina were receiving the North Rhine-Westphalia State Prize for Michael, Corinna was visibly overcome and fell in front of a crowd in standing ovation for the driver.
