Schumacher condition ‘not good’ says di Montezemolo

Luca di Montezemolo on Michael Schumacher - "I have news and unfortunately it is not good..."
The condition of seven-time F1 world champion Michael Schumacher is 'not good', according to former Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo.

Speaking to reporters, di Montezemelo is quoted as saying by Reuters that he 'has news' but declined to give further details to reporters.

"I have news and unfortunately it is not good," he said.

Schumcher seriously injured in a skiing accident in the French Alps in December 2013. After several months in hospital, he has been continuing his rehabilitation at home in Switzerland, though his exact condition has never been officially communicated as the family seek to retain his privacy.

"Life is strange,” di Montezemelo also said. “He was a fantastic driver and only had one accident with Ferrari, in 1999.”

It is not clear what has prompted di Montezemolo – who worked closely with Schumacher during his time in Ferrari – to pass comment on his condition now. He was speaking to a selection of journalists at an event to mark the anniversary of an Italian motoring publication.

Schumacher's manager, Sabine Kehm, declined to give comment at this time when contacted by Sky Sports..

There is nothing LDM has said that could not have been inferred from the complete lack of news. I only hope that this prolonged and awful journey has a wonderful outcome and we get to see a happy and smiling Michael Schumacher again.
