Michael Schumacher watched five-time world champion Lewis Hamilton win the Brazilian Grand Prix last month at his Switzerland house, FIA president Jean Todt has now revealed.
Schumacher, the most successful Formula One driver, was critically injured in December 2013 in a skiing accident in Meribel, and following the news of his accident, there has been little public knowledge of his recovery.
Despite moving back to his house in Switzerland, the seven time Formula 1 world champion still requires around-the-clock care and support, with only very close family and friends permitted to see the recovering German driver in his house.
However, following months of no news on the German, Jean Todt — Schumacher’s former Ferrari boss — has shed light on the situation, revealing he watched the 2018 Formula 1 Brazilian Grand Prix with the German.
Speaking to Auto Bild in an interview, Todt said: “Actually, I’m always careful when I say something. But it’s true, I watched the Brazilian Grand Prix in Switzerland with Michael.”
