Michael Schumacher’s former manager wants family to update fans on F1 driver’s condition

Michael Schumacher’s former manager thinks the family of the F1 legend should come clean with his millions of fans.lmost four years after the seven-time Formula 1 world champion’s skiing crash, virtually nothing is known about the extent of the now 48-year-old former driver’s brain injuries.

Concurrently, there are unconfirmed rumors circulating that Schumacher will be moved from Switzerland to the U.S., that his health condition is improving and that he has relapsed into a coma. Willi Weber, who was Schumacher’s long-term manager, blames the confusion on the great German’s family and current management.

“I find it very unfortunate that Michael’s fans do not know about his health. Why are they not being told the truth?” Weber asked.

Weber was speaking to the Munich-based newspaper TZ shortly after a recent back surgery.

“Formula 1 is just like my back now — painful,” Weber said. “It is now a Mickey Mouse show and nothing else. The sport has gone into the background.”
