Strange, Todt said exactly the same thing after the Brazilian GP last year. It's almost as if this a completely made-up bullcrap story using various previous soundbites.

He's been "awake" for ages.
Has he? I thought they'd refused to give any information on his condition at all (as is, of course, their right).
They confirmed he was out of a coma. Therefore, he's awake.

In what state is unknown.

Wasn't todt in the Merc garage during the race so how come he's also watching the same race with Schumacher. Made up story.

I do feel it would be better for the family to give an accurate press release. It would stop many trying to get the pictures or medical information which would then be sold onto the press.

Yes, the family want privacy which is understandable but Schumacher was a massive figure in F1.

IMO their lives would be much more relaxed with the truth.

He was speaking about the Austrian race if my mind isn't playing tricks. Todt was in the Mercedes garage in Germany.

But I could be wrong.

Who the hell stays awake watching F1 nowadays.?

Whoever gets to the first corner first normally wins That way i can get on with doing something more interesting

And before anyone starts ranting. I have been watching racing of all types from 1964. Snetterton/Brands/Crystal Palace/Silverstone Where driving ability meant more than sitting in a moving video game and letting someone else press the buttons

Whilst safety has meant the driveis are more cocooned ( and i am in whole hearted agreement) you do miss watching the DRIVE thr car instead of just pointing it and hoping the traction control.air brakes ,man on the end of a phone, decides they know better.

Back in the day you could go to a meet. esp at Palce and see Jim Clark in an F2 Lotus, then in a Cortina in the next race, then a lotus 23 type body. It is all bland now.and the fun has gone right out of it
And i hope Schu does get better
What utter drivel

edit, apart from the last sentence, that I can agree with.

Not much chance of photos or medical records escaping. He's in his family home, not going anywhere and has live in medical staff who I assume the family trust completely.

What could they possibly say? Explain how limited his interaction with the world is now and how there is no reason to expect change? That's probably fairly accurate but the statement in itself would raise headlines and stress levels for everyone involved. I think we just have to accept that nothing is being said as there is nothing positive to say - and really, no reason to try and say anything. He did his public work on the track, the family don't owe the public anything about his personal state off the track, no more or less now than they ever did before. Pending a miracle, I think this book is better left closed.

If Mick makes it to F1 they'll have to change their approach, every interaction with the press is going to start "How's your dad?" and his name is going to attract the tabloids, at least for a while, who won't be as considerate as regular F1 reporters.

It really won't. F1 journalists are largely a tight knit bunch. Even if an outlier does ask, a simple 'no comment' will kill that conversation and any future ones.

The family making a statement opens up far more questions than answers. Everyone knows that it's likely to be a desperately sad situation, they are perfectly entitled to keep everything private.

Don't know about that, Buxton keeps asking Charles about the death of his dad every time he has an angle to use that reference. Makes me a bit sick to be honest.

I imagine if his son does make it to F1 especially with Ferrari. The media will be strongly briefed before hand not to pester about his father or risk being denied future interviews etc.

Ferrari would probably have no problem black listing people. They do it to car reviewers often.

They do also still seem to very much have a soft spot for the Schumacher family.

Now go back and read the part of the sentence you cut off.

Based on latest information I have gained from the Internet, Michael is doing very well Apres Ski, and has announced he is coming out retirement. He will be joining the new team in F1 next year, which will be sponsored by Crosse & Blackwell. The cars are already in advanced stages of design. The livery will bear (in conjunction with Cambell's and Andy Warhol's family) a soup based theme. The radical engine design will run on a new ethically sourced vegetable fuel derived from organically grown soya beans from his own farm. He has set up his own farm, producing not only the soya beans, but organically grown walking sticks. Many reports also suggest that he has been visited by extraterrestrials from the planet Wafren and will soon learn the meaning of life.

I think it's all cr*p myself?

I read somewhere yesterday (not the DM) that he was going to a hospital in Paris that specialised in stem cell treatments. Could all be horse st of course.
