According to Ferrari, over 200 fans from Italian and French Scuderia Ferrari clubs as well as fans from Germany and Spain took part in today’s silent vigil for Michael Schumacher outside the University Hospital Center in Grenoble, France.
“The Ferrari Heart which was displayed today in the hospital car park in the French city was held up by the hands of those present but also metaphorically by the strength of the millions of fans from around the world who today are even closer than ever to Michael, as he fights the hardest challenge of his life,” the team said in a statement.
Schumacher, who turns 45 today, remains in critical but stable condition and in a medically induced coma at the hospital, and no further update on his condition is expected today. He sustained a severe head injury in a skiing accident this past Sunday in the French town of Meribel.
Britain’s Telegraph newspaper has posted a video of the vigil that features comments from fans in Grenoble. You can check out the clip above.
