Schumacher victory shot – Spanish GP 2004


Michael Schumacher’s manager says the condition of the seven time world champion is “improving”.

Sabine Kehm, who is now guiding Schumacher’s son Mick on his first steps in single seaters, appeared in the Barcelona paddock ahead of the Spanish grand prix.

When asked about the mostly unknown fate of F1’s most successful driver ever, she was quoted by Sky Italia: “There are small improvements, but the road is still very long.”

The latest news about 46-year-old former Ferrari and Mercedes driver Schumacher is that his wife Corinna has sold his private jet and favourite holiday home in Norway.

The usually well-connected German weekly Bunte claims she made the decision “When it became clear that the old Schumi perhaps would never return”.

Now, the world is closely watching the early development of Schumacher’s successor, his 16-year-old son Mick.

Toro Rosso star Carlos Sainz, another son of a famous father, sympathises with motor racing’s latest ‘junior’.

“The truth is that it hurt me,” he told France’s L’Equipe when asked what having a famous father was like as he rose through the ranks.

“At the track, all of my competitors dreamed of beating the son of Carlos Sainz. I imagine it is the same for Schumacher’s son now.

“These are difficult moments for him because he is still a child. But in the end it was a good thing for me,” Sainz added, “because it made me stronger.” (GMM)
