Many drivers’ thoughts are with seven-time Formula One World Champion Michael Schumacher, who is currently listed in critical condition and is in a coma after sustaining a severe head injury today in a skiing accident in France.
A further update is expected to come tomorrow morning from the Grenoble, France hospital where Schumacher is currently being treated. But as we all wait for what will hopefully be encouraging news, Schumacher’s fellow racers have taken to Twitter to express their hope that the great champion will pull through.
My thoughts are with Michael Schumacher at this tough time.. Michael more than anyone has the strength to pull through this.—
