Posting on Kindle, so can't do links, but it seems he's had a very nasty skiiing accident.

Didn't realise it was so serious. Hope the guy pulls through.

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

Initial stories seemed to be quite blasé about it. Some even said he walked away and just felt a little shaken.  This was the line the British reporters took until somebody translated what was actually coming out in French.

I met Schumacher once in Switzerland. Nice guy, and nothing like the arrogant German he is often portrayed to be.

 

I even have photos of the occasion.

A lot of the British perception of Schumacher is down to the more-than-a-bit biased commentary of Martin Brundle, who never remembered to mention that he was also the well-paid P.R. agent for his rival David Coulthard. Odd, that.

I always liked Schumacher and wish him the very best of luck.

As a teenager I spent time in Schumacher's hometown of Kerpen (near Cologne), and he was absolutely hero-worshipped by the locals - as you would expect, perhaps. Tellingly though, and as an earlier post also testifies, he had a reputation as a real gentleman who'd invested a lot of money in local enterprises and charities etc. Certainly a million miles away from his media image.

He is much admired in countries that don't still cling to the notion that World War 2 is still on and that all Germans are therefore evil.

I'd love to think the scumbag got a good shoeing before being let go...

I'd like to think that Michael Schumacher is a fighter, and given the early interventional surgery, he will be OK.

 

God Bless to him and his family, especially at this time of year.
