I regularly visit Schumi, family wants to keep a sort of secrecy – Badoer

Luca Badoer says he has visited Michael Schumacher “regularly” since the F1 legend’s skiing accident in late 2013.

The former Ferrari test driver’s comments come after Rubens Barrichello revealed last week that the Schumacher family had blocked him from visiting.

“I regularly visit him,” Italian Badoer told Diariodelweb.it. “But the family wants to keep a sort of secrecy around him and I fully respect their will. They do everything for the good of Michael.

“Corinna allows very few people to visit him — let’s respect what she wants, avoiding any polemic,” he added.

The star’s management team said the site hope’s to provide a “home” for his fans all around the world.

Posting a message on the website, his family wrote: “Still we receive wishes for Michael to get well soon every day, and still we are stunned by the sheer amount of sympathies.

“We can only always thank you for facing this fight together with him and us. We remain confident and hope the best for Michael. Your strength is helping us to keep supporting him.”

Professor Mark Obermann, Director of the Centre for Neurology at the Asklepios clinic in Seesen, has told the star’s supporters “they shouldn’t (give up hope).”

He said: “According to a Swedish study, between 30 and 40 percent of patients have regained consciousness within four years.

“Many can come back to life and see how their children and grandchildren grow up, what plans they have or what else happens in the family or in the circle of friends.”
