Schumacher family should give health update – Weber

Michael Schumacher’s former manager thinks the family should reconsider its decision to keep the public in the dark about the F1 legend’s health.

Just after Christmas, Willi Weber, who handled Schumacher’s career from the junior formulae through to title stardom, revealed that he has been unable to visit the great German since his 2013 skiing crash.

“Unfortunately, it is just as I wrote on Facebook,” he told Bild newspaper. “Corinna prevents me from having any contact with Michael.”

Now, Weber has spoken to the European gossip magazine Gala and said the policy of not allowing him to see Schumacher as he recuperates at home in Switzerland means he is suffering “like a dog”.

“I just hope one day my phone rings, it’s Michael and he says ‘Willi, get down here as there is so much to discuss’. Just as it was before,” he said.

As for the policy of not updating the wider world about Schumacher’s current health condition, Weber added: “I think Michael’s fans would be happy if they received an honest message about his health.

“It would also help the people with whom Michael worked for all those years to deal better with the situation,” he said.
