Nearly two years after his ski accident in 2013, Michael Schumacher’s condition is still unknown. While his recovery is believed to be making progress, the racing world continues to show support for the F1 racer.
Former Ferrari Boss Luca De Montezemolo showed his support to Schumacher and his condition, dedicating his Automotive “Hall of Fame” induction to the Formula One driver who is “trying to win his toughest race,” according to Express.
“I don’t know if I would have received this award without him. It is dedicated to him, because he is trying to win his toughest race,” Montezemolo said.
During his speech at the event in Detroit, the ex-Ferrari president added that Schumacher’s situation is “very sad.”
“He was not only someone I worked with, but above all a friend with whom I shared so much. To know that he now lies in bed for such a long time is very sad.”
Inquisitr noted that Michael Schumacher is one of the most celebrated F1 drivers in its history. He has also driven for several teams Jordan, Benetton, Ferrari and Mercedes. He achieved the most number of world championships, race wins in a single season, fastest laps, pole positions, to name a few. All of his victories were recorded during Luca De Montezemolo’s leadership.
However, on December 2013, after a year of retirement, the seven time world champion sustained severe head injuries from a tragic skiing accident. Schumacher accidentally hit his head on a huge rock while skiing in the French Alps. He was hospitalized and has been put under a medically induced coma for 4 months.
Express also reported that the F1 racer has returned to his Swiss home at Lake Geneva last September 2014 for recovery. A weekly cost of $150,000 has been reported for his home care, noted Inquistr.
As of this moment, the source said that his condition is slowly improving, according to his manager Sabine Kehm.
