Is Michael Schumacher enjoying the success of son Mick?



“His fight is still going on, along with his family and his doctors,” said Todt about the German driver, who suffered serious brain damage in a skiing accident in 2013. “I do meet Michael regularly. We watch television together. Whether he will experience the successes of his son Mick? I’m not going to talk about that. I don’t want to go into detail because it’s private. ”

Mick Schumacher is well on his way to becoming the new Formula 2 champion and looks set to be promoted to the premier class next season as a Haas driver. “Mick is a young, talented driver. He has a big name, but that big name doesn’t drive the car. When he enters Formula 1, he doesn’t have a winning car yet. He will need time. It is too early to know if he has the same talent as his father, Max Verstappen or Lewis Hamilton. We do not know yet.”

Todt sits on the board of the Keep Fighting Foundation, founded by Michael Schumacher’s wife Corinna, along with Mick Schumacher and Formula 1’s technical director Ross Brawn, among others. “What she does is unbelievable. The foundation’s latest initiative is a good example. Together with the United Nations and the FIA, we develop helmets for young motorcyclists in developing countries. There they now often wear helmets that look like they are made of glass. The helmets we are introducing are much safer and affordable, under twenty dollars. We always have Michael in mind with these kinds of initiatives. ”
