Schumacher ‘still fighting’ – FIA boss

BERLIN, November 1 – Former Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher is “still fighting” as the second anniversary of his skiing accident approaches, according to FIA president Jean Todt.

The Germany ace spent six months in an induced coma last year after suffering a serious head injury while skiing in the French Alps in December 2013.

He is continuing his rehabilitation at home in Switzerland and has yet to make a public appearance since the accident.

Todt, speaking before Sunday’s Formula One Grand Prix in Mexico City, told German media that Schumacher is recovering with his family at his side.

“Michael was and remains a close friend of mine,” said Todt, who was Schumacher’s team boss at Ferrari when the German won five titles between 2000 and 2004. “His family is very close.

“I see Michael often and can tell you: Michael is still fighting. And his family are still fighting by his side.”

Todt said Lewis Hamilton’s third world title reminded him of Schumacher’s record-breaking achievements, having won seven world titles before retiring in 2012.

“I was very proud of what Michael did and sometimes you tend to forget what awesome things he achieved,” he added.
