A deeply moved Mick Schumacher mentioned his relationship with his father Michael in a documentary that Netflix proposes to the seven-time Formula 1 world champion. The current driver regrets not being able to talk to him after the December 2013 crash.
More than seven years have passed since Michael Schumacher suffered a terrible skiing accident in Meribel in December 2013. Since then, there has been no information on the health status of the Formula 1 legend. Netflix documentary The seven-time world champion is trusted by his relatives.
“I would give anything so that we can talk to each other.”
The words of his son Mick, now a Formula 1 driver on the Haas team, are very moving. “Obviously, after the accident, all those moments that other children can spend with their parents … all of this no longer exists. Or much less. I think this is a little unfair, a young man of 22 years old is touched. I would say that my dad and I still understand each other, but differently… We have a common language – motorsport. And we always have something to say to each other. I think about it almost all the time. I tell myself that it would be so good, I would give anything so that we can talk to each other. “
“Confidentiality remains confidential”
His wife Corinne Schumacher tries to keep her husband’s health secret. “We are trying to keep the family that Michael loved so much and still loves,” she insists. And we continue to live our lives. Privacy remains private, as he liked to say. He always looked after us, now we have to look after him. “
Jean Todt, President of the International Automobile Federation (FIA) and a great friend of Michael Schumacher, suggests how the heart of the Shumi clan was broken after the accident of a former driver: “Fate is unpredictable. Michael has often had a good fortune. Now, unfortunately, he is the victim of a bad lot. On December 29, 2013, it changed the life of Michael and his family. For the family, this is a momentary change in life. A father who had amazing leadership, a great personality … it all fell apart every minute. “
