Former Ferrari sports director Jean Todt spoke about his meeting with the seven-time world champion in Formula 1 racing, Michael Schumacher.

According to the Frenchman, he saw Michael last week.

“He is struggling. I hope the world will see him again. This is what Schumacher himself and his family are working hard on,” – Todt.

When asked if he considered the German the greatest driver of all time, Jean answered cautiously.

“I adore Michael, but it is impossible to name who was the best in history. There is Juan Manuel Fangio, Jim Clark, Ayrton Senna and Michael. You can only use terms who were the best in a particular generation. I understand that Lewis Hamilton can break Schumacher’s record as the most awarded driver in history. For this he has all the ingredients in a Mercedes. But I honestly do not know, “- said Todt.

The former head of the Italian “stable” remembered 2000 and the celebration on the podium in Suzuka with Michael, when he won the first championship with Ferrari.

“Told him then that our life will never be the same, we have achieved everything we wanted. But after the incident that happened with Michael, does it even matter that Lewis took more titles? It’s a question of proportions. We are in Formula. -1 are all lucky when you see everything that happens in the world, and not only with the monster that has become COVID-19, “Todt said.

Earlier, the ex-manager of Schumacher Willie Weber revealed the “most idiotic decision” of the German. Resuming the Red Baron’s career in 2010 was a bad move, Weber said.
