Ecclestone: He is not with us at the moment

Ahead of the much anticipated ‘Schumacher’ documentary set to be released in Germany this year, a trailer featuring former Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone as well as the legend’s wife Corinna and 74-year-old father Rolf Schumacher.

In a trailer screened at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Ecclestone says, “He is not with us at the moment. But when he gets better, he’ll answer all the questions.”

Schumacher has been rigorously kept from public since he suffered life-threatening head injuries in a skiing accident in 2013, and updates on his condition are rare, however it is believed he is receiving constant care in a tailor-made room in the family home in Switzerland.

Michael Schumacher’s father Rolf, says, “He knew what he wanted as a child. That was no wonder, that was the skill he had worked for himself.”

Corinna adds: “Michael is a fighter and will not give up.”

Schumi is the sport’s most successful driver of all time, a true legend of the sport whose fate has devastated his legions of fans and left a black-hole in our sport.
