“He did survive – but with consequences”– Jean Todt provides a new health update of Ferrari legend Michael Schumacher amidst recovery.
Michael Schumacher had a life-threatening accident in 2013, which inflicted a brain injury, and from there onwards, it is unknown what’s the actual state of the former world champion.
Though FIA President Jean Todt has given brief health updates about him in between, and in his latest update, he has told that Schumacher is living with consequences.
“I’ve spent a lot of time with Corinna since Michael had his serious skiing accident,” Todt told Bild newspaper. “She is a great woman and leads the family,” he added, referring to Schumacher’s wife.
“She didn’t expect that. It happened suddenly and she had no choice.” He continued: “Thanks to the work of his doctors and the cooperation of Corinna, who wanted Michael to survive, he did survive – but with consequences.”
“At the moment he fights the consequences. We hope that things will slowly but surely improve,” Todt added.
Mick has a special place in my heart.
The seven0time world champion’s son has also taken the same career route and is currently driving with Haas in his rookie season in F1, and for Todt, he is special.
“Mick is one of those people who always has a special place in my heart and that of my wife Michelle,” said the Frenchman.
Netflix to premiere Schumacher soon on screens
Last year, there were reports of Schumacher’s family releasing some inside stories of the former F1 driver to the world in a documentary film, and Todt apparently is also going to contribute to it. And Netflix has confirmed the release of it on its platform on September 15.

“Michael Schumacher has redefined the professional image of a racing driver and has set new standards. In his quest for perfection, he spared neither himself nor his team, driving them to the greatest successes,” Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm said
“He is admired all over the world for his leadership qualities. He found the strength for this task and the balance to recharge at home, with his family, whom he loves idolatrously.”
“In order to preserve his private sphere as a source of strength, he has always rigorously and consistently separated his private from his public life. This film tells of both worlds. It is his family’s gift to their beloved husband and father.”
