It is difficult to know what former Ferrari president, Luca di Montezemolo, may have meant when he commented on 7-time world champion Michael Schumacher’s medical condition saying:
“I have news and unfortunately it is not good.
“Life is strange. He was a fantastic driver and only had one accident with Ferrari in 1999.“
Does this mean things have taken a turn for the worse? Is this simply in context of Michael’s condition isn’t improving as fast as people would have hoped or at all?
Context is king and it is never easy to understand these answers when asked by the press pool at an event Luca was attending but suffice it to say, I am not encouraged either way.
Schumacher’s long-time publicist, Sabine Kehm, refused to comment on the situation when contacted by press which also doesn’t put a lot of confidence in my heart. I don’t like speculation much and try not to engage in it but Michael’s situation is very close to home for me and very personal on many levels. I do hope he is not worsening.
