The president of the International Motor Federation (FIA), Jean Todd, is one of the few people who visited Michael Schumacher after a severe accident in the Alps.
If there has been light at the end of the tunnel to restore the sport legend, the sad revelations that Todd has made about the condition of his good friend have distracted every hope.
In an interview with the British newspaper Express, he said that Schumacher may never recover.
"His family is struggling just like him, but our friendship will never be the same as before, just because it's not the same anymore," said Jean Todd.
In 2013, the seven-time world champion suffered a serious fall on concealed stone under snow, which caused serious brain and skull damage. He worked diligently at a local hospital and since then his family has significantly reduced the flow of information to public space. Schumacher has been recovering for some time in his home near Lake Geneva, where very few people, such as Todd, have the opportunity to personally see a 50-year-old former pilot.
The Frenchman is still visiting Shumi at every convenient opportunity, and last week he was a special guest at the Speedway Festival in West Sussex, England, where he paid a special homage to the chicken.
"I can only say that the Schumacher family cares for him and continues to fight," added the Frenchman.
