Montezemolo denies latest Schumacher comments

International publications and Luca di Montezemolo have clarified reports this week that suggest Michael Schumacher’s condition is now improving.

Numerous authoritative media outlets on Tuesday quoted former Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo as having given the promising news to ‘Ecunemical News’.

“I’m very pleased to know that he (Schumacher) is reacting,” Montezemolo said.

However, Spain’s El Mundo Deportivo said of Montezemolo’s words: “They are not new, but date back to May 2016.”

Indeed, official news about the great seven time world champion’s condition in the wake of his late 2013 skiing accident has been scant for months, as the German’s family and manager Sabine Kehm fiercely guard their privacy.

Bild, a German newspaper that has closely followed 47-year-old Schumacher’s career and life, also said in the wake of the latest reports that the former Ferrari and Mercedes driver’s condition “has not changed appreciably”.

And Sky Italia has quoted a spokesman for Montezemolo as also playing down this week’s reports.

“He never made such statements and has not spoken about Schumacher’s health for several months,” he said, adding that the latest reports are “totally unfounded”.
