Schumacher still maintains connection to F1


//

Michael Schumacher’s former Ferrari boss, Jean Todt, has revealed the seven-time F1 champion watched Lewis Hamilton win the Brazilian Grand Prix from his home in Switzerland.

Todt, now the president of the FIA is one of the few people who has access to Schumacher since he was tragically injured five years ago.

Schumacher suffered a traumatic brain injury in a skiing accident while on holiday in the French Alps in 2013, with his family remaining notoriously quiet on the F1 legends condition ever since.

That stance has softened in recent months with the latest insight coming from Todt who revealed he travelled to Schumacher’s house in Switzerland to watch Hamilton claim the Brazilian Grand Prix with the sporting icon.

“Actually, I’m always careful when I say something. But it’s true, I watched the Brazilian Grand Prix in Switzerland with Michael,” Todt told Auto-Bild.

The pairs relationship blossomed when Todt was manager of the Ferrari team with who Schumacher claimed five consecutive championships in the early 2000’s.

“Pictures of him hang everywhere in my offices and apartments. The time with Michael will always be remembered as the best of my life,” he said.

Recently a family friend revealed how "hard" Schumacher's condition was on his son, F3 champion Mick Schumacher.

A touching letter from his wife, Corrina, to a well-wisher also made headlines in which she described her husband as a "fighter", as did a charity initiative that involved the Schumacher family's Keep Fighting Foundation.
