Former manager: "Situation Schumacher still hurts me"

Michael Schumacher's former manager says he no longer watches motor sport. "It hurts," said Willi Weber, referring to the plight of his former charge Schumacher, who two years ago sustained brain damage in a skiing fall. "That's why I no longer go to the race track or watch the races," Weber told the Kolner Express tabloid.

Weber said he has little information about the precise health condition of the great seven-time world champion. "We know that Michael makes a little progress two years after his tragic accident," he said. "But the question is how much. For Michael it's bad. The brain damage has been serious, according to his doctor," Weber revealed.

Flavio Briatore, Schumacher's former team boss at Benetton, admitted recently he doesn't visit the great German as he prefers to remember how he was before the accident.

Weber agrees: "We experienced so much together that I would like these pictures in my head of him to stay. I find it alarming that we hear nothing from the family. For sure if there was a breakthrough in the rehabilitation we would be notified."

    His accident had nothing to do with racing. I guess Willi doesn't know the facts.

    • It brings back memories I guess. The accident has nothing to do with racing but his life did.
