Michael Schumacher – I relive the drama with great sadness, admitted former Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo

It was with sadness on Tuesday that two of Michael Schumacher’s former colleagues marked the two-year anniversary of the great German’s skiing crash.

“I relive the drama with great sadness,” admitted former Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo, under whose reign Schumacher won a record five consecutive world championships wearing red.

“I am close to Corinna, Mick and Gina-Maria and on January 3 (Schumacher’s 47th birthday) I will phone Corinna,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Italian report said Montezemolo has not seen Schumacher since the retired seven time world champion fell whilst skiing in the French Alps exactly two years ago, sustaining serious brain injuries.

“But even with great sadness I still believe in a miracle and in the meantime I keep in mind the moments of our triumphs,” Montezemolo added.

He said his only regret is, when Schumacher was showing interest in a F1 comeback, he could not stop the German from deciding to join the new works Mercedes project.

“If I could have pushed through the proposal of the third car, it would have been for him,” said Montezemolo.

And Piero Ferrari, the only living son of the great Enzo Ferrari, commented: “It is sad to think of him in such a condition. I never imagined that fate would have this in store.”

Le Parisien newspaper on Tuesday reported that the Schumacher family spends EUR 500,000 per month on the 46-year-old’s ongoing rehabilitation.
