After a very unfortunate skiing accident in 2013, F1 racing legend Michael Schumacher suffered a traumatic brain injury after which he has made no appearances.
Recently, Jason Todt, former CEO of Ferrari and friend of Schumacher had announced that his family was working towards a public appearance. This was the first we had heard anything on him since 2013, after which no more updates were announced.
Zurich-based neurology specialist Professor Erich Riederer has recently revealed his thoughts about the German legend, saying “I think he’s in a vegetative state, which means he’s awake but not responding”, according to Grand Prix.
“He is breathing, his heart is beating, he can probably sit up and take baby steps with help but no more.”
“I think that’s the maximum for him. Is there any chance of seeing him like he was before his accident? I really don’t think so.”
As mentioned before though, Todt had previously announced that his family and him were fighting to get him back on his feet, and we can only pray he sees brighter days.
