Ferrari And Fans Say Happy Birthday Michael Get Well Soon
Friday and it would appear Michael’s condition has not changed significantly. Although this might indicate there is no improvement I would like to refer to his press agent Sabine Kehm when she previously stated: “The good news for today is [that] there’s no significant changes,” as said on the first day of 2014. With this in mind we should all focus on the positive signs the medical experts have outlined in these past five or so days and take it just one day at a time. -jp-
Ferrari fans will hold a silent 45th birthday tribute to Michael Schumacher – wearing red – outside his French hospital on Friday with the seven time Formula 1 World Champion in a coma and fighting for his life after a skiing accident, with experts predicting that he could remain in a coma for weeks.
The Formula 1 team’s Facebook page said that the Scuderia Ferrari Clubs wanted to show their support and were organising “a silent and respectful event all in red” at the Grenoble hospital where the German has been since shortly after his fall on Sunday.
Ferrari said that the team also planned a special tribute to their former driver, who won five successive titles with them, on the official Ferrari website.
Schumacher left Ferrari in 2006 but then came out of retirement in 2010 for a three-year comeback with Mercedes that ended unsuccessfully in 2012.
Ferrari wrote on their website: “This is a special day for Ferrari and all its fans, as it is Michael Schumacher’s birthday. At the moment, he is tackling the most important fight of his life and therefore we want to send him very special wishes. There have [been] so many wonderful moments we have spent together and we have chosen 72.”
“It’s not a random number, as it represents the number of wins Michael achieved with the Scuderia from 1996 to 2006: 72 grands prix that gave us and the millions of Prancing Horse fans from all over the world so much pleasure. These were unforgettable moments which, along with his passion, commitment and dedication makes Michael part of the great Ferrari family for ever.”
“Everyone at Ferrari, from President Luca di Montezemolo and Team Principal Stefano Domenicali, who are in touch all the time with Michael’s family and those closest to him, are continuously watching how his situation evolves. Obviously, today there are double the [usual] reasons to wish him all the best.” (Read more)
