Former Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo says the latest news about the health of former Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher “is not good,” but he has refused to elaborate.
“I have news and unfortunately it is not good,” former Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo told reporters Thursday. “Life is strange. He was a fantastic driver and only had one accident with Ferrari in 1999.”
It has been more than two years since Schumacher sustained severe brain injuries while skiing in the French Alps. He spent a number of months in intensive care in a Grenoble hospital before regaining consciousness. He was later moved to a hospital in Lausanne and returned home to continue intensive treatment in September 2014. Since then, there has been little information revealed about the 46-year-old and his recovery.
A spokesperson for the injured driver wouldn’t confirm or deny Di Montezemolo’s comments.
