As usual, Jean Todt was asked about the German’s state of health. It was after the Grand Prix of Turkey, where Lewis Hamilton equaled the seven world titles harvested by the kaiser. The president of the FIA took advantage of the occasion to deny that Michael Schumacher he would have suffered “devastating complications” during confinement, as the English press claimed.
According to Jean Todt in RTL, the confinement has not affected the recovery of the German “because it is very well surrounded and also installed in a comfortable place”. Asked about his state of health, the president of the FIA added: “This is a question that I will be extremely secretive about.. I see Michael very often, once or twice a month. My answer is always the same: He is struggling and we can only wish him and his family that things get better”.
Jean Todt has also confirmed that Michael Schumacher remains attentive to the evolution of his son: “Indeed, of course he follows his son Mick”. With two appointments to go before the end of the F2 World Cup, the kaiser’s son remains the leader and has the championship almost in his pocket.
Mick’s good work in F2 has helped him earn a place in Formula 1 next season, in which he will race alongside Nikita Mazepin at Haas. “We would be delighted to see again a Schumacher at the highest level of Formula 1”, Added a Jean Todt, who has also spoken about it. He also did it days ago, where he noted: “He has a great name, but he will need time. It is too early to compare him with his father and to know if he will be able to compete with Hamilton or Verstappen, we still do not know”.
