Schumacher ski story is ‘tragedy’ – Ecclestone



Bernie Ecclestone has described the fate of F1 legend Michael Schumacher as a “tragedy”.

15 months ago, the seven time world champion fell whilst skiing with his son Mick in the French alps, suffering serious brain injuries.

“I know nothing about his current condition,” F1 chief executive Ecclestone, who has known the now 46-year-old German for over two decades, said.

“This may sound strange,” the 84-year-old Briton told Germany’s Welt am Sonntag newspaper, “but it would have been more logical if he had had his accident in racing.

“That is the tragedy of this story,” Ecclestone added. “He had a lot of crashes and took a lot of risks, but for it to happen like this? It was not even a skiing race.”

Schumacher, with 91 grand prix wins to his name, is the most statistically successfully driver in the history of formula one. (GMM)
