Meta: Michael Schumacher update: Son pays glowing tribute to ‘idol’ father | World | News


Michael placed was in an induced coma following a serious skiing accident in December 2013, and health updates on the former F1 driver have been scarce since then. The Formula One legend established himself as one of the best drivers in the sport following his 10-year spell with Ferrari where he won five world titles.

His son, Mick currently races for Italian team, Prema Theodore Racing in Formula Two.

The team has strong ties with Ferrari and has many of the current Italian giant’s Ferrari Driver Academy youngsters, such as Mick.

Speaking on Tuesday, Mick gave a touching tribute to his father as he looks to establish his career in the sport.

In an interview with motorpsort-magazine.com, Mick revealed how he still feels his father’s presence in the car as he races.

The 20-year-old said: “I can directly feel my father’s DNA in every Ferrari.

“It just fills me with pride.

“Not only was Michael important to Ferrari as a Formula One driver, but he also put his racer experience into the development of road vehicles.”

Mick joined the Italian racing in 2019 and is currently in 12th place in the drivers’ rankings.

“And in the end we are doing the same thing. We have the same passion, the same ‘hobby’.

“And I think we just look a lot alike.”

Recently, Michael has undergone new age stem cell therapy following his admission to the Georges Pompidou Hospital in Paris.

While at the hospital, Michael was treated by cardiac surgeon, Philippe Menasché, a pioneer in the field of stem cell therapy.

The procedure, however, had gained widespread attention with some accusing the doctor of performing experimental treatment of the Formula One star.

Mr Menasche shot down those claims and has insisted that he had “not used experimental cures” on Schumacher.

Speaking to Italian publication La Repubblica, Mr Menasche said: “I do not perform miracles.

“My team and I are not doing an experiment, an abominable term that is not in line with a serious medical view.”

Furthermore, despite the vast development in stem cell research, there is still a lot of work to be done in the field.
