Together, the two Germans dominated the multi-discipline stadium-racing contest for years, but ever since late 2013 Vettel’s mentor Schumacher has been recovering from his near-fatal skiing fall.

“It is a shame that he cannot be here with us now — it’s difficult for us all,” Vettel, who competed against the likes of Daniel Ricciardo, Felipe Massa, Nico Hulkenberg, Jenson Button, Romain Grosjean and many other names across the world of international motor racing, told SID news agency.

“We know that he (Michael) keeps fighting, we know that he’s not well, so we wish him all the best,” the Ferrari driver added.

“It is generally a difficult issue, but clearly I think almost everyone here knows him personally,” said Vettel.

“The bottom line is that he is a good friend, and a friend that we are missing here now.”
