Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo told journailsts in Geneva that he is still shocked by the events which have led to Michael Schumacher lying in a coma for over two months.

Speaking in Geneva to the media, Montezemolo said, “Michael was and still is a very important person in my life. From 1996 onwards so many things happened in the lives of both of us and, in the difficult times, Michael was always incredibly close to the team.”

“What’s happened to him was a real shock to me, after all the events we shared and a great affection still remains. Michael at the moment needs that affection and support from everyone,” added Montezemolo.
