MILAN, February 4th – Sombre ex-Ferrari chief Luca de Montezemolo admitted on Thursday that he did not have “good news” regarding the condition of stricken Formula One legend Michael Schumacher.

Former world champion Schumacher has been in a coma since suffering head injuries from a skiing accident in the French Alps in December 2013.

“I get news about him constantly, and unfortunately it’s not good,” said Montezemolo when asked about Schumacher in Milan on Thursday.

Montezemolo did not elaborate on 47-year-old Schumacher’s condition, but he added: “He was the most successful driver Ferrari ever had. He only suffered one accident in his entire career, in 1999, and it was our fault, not his.

“Unfortunately, a skiing accident ruined his life.”

Amid speculation Schumacher was at fault for the accident that has left him in a coma for over two years, Montezemolo defended the former champion.

“It’s not true that Michael wasn’t careful on his skis. When he went off piste, he was always careful,” he added.

“More than anything, on skis he was very careful.”
