Mick Schumacher spoke in the Netflix documentary about the seven-time F1 world champion the state of his father’s health. The heartbreaking words of a son.
On the front of the stage since his arrival in F1 at the beginning of the year, Mick Schumacher has nonetheless always remained very discreet about his father. The driver of the Haas team refuses to mention the state of health of the former icon of Formula 1, victim of a terrible ski accident in Méribel, in December 2013. Like his mother , the young German pilot has departed from his line of conduct for the documentary broadcast by Netflix since Wednesday on the career of the seven-time world champion.
The opportunity for Mick Schumacher to evoke the terrible lack experienced for almost eight years now. “Since the accident, all those moments that other children can spend with their parents… all of this no longer exists. Or much less. I find it a little unfair, he thus confided. I would say that dad and I still understand each other but in a different way. We have this language in common, motorsport. And we always have a lot 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. “
The 22-year-old is not the only one to testify. Corinna Schumacher also spoke about the lack felt since the accident of the former Ferrari driver. “I miss him every day. But I’m not the only one missing. The children, the family, his father, everyone around him. Everyone misses Michael ”, she said, adding: “But Michael is here. He’s different, but he’s there. And that gives us strength, I think. “ On this occasion, Schumi’s wife gave some information on the daily life of the Schumacher family: “We are together, we live together at home. He is undergoing treatment. We do everything to improve his condition, to make sure he is comfortable and to make him feel our family, our bond. Whatever happens, I’ll do whatever I can. We will all do it. As a family, we try to carry on as Michael would have liked and as he would still love her. ”
