‘The accident had consequences… I go and see him, nobody knows anything’: Michael Schumacher’s close friend Jean Todt, who visits once a month, gives a rare insight into his state – and calls for privacy for his wife Corinna

Former FIA President Jean Todt has acknowledged Michael Schumacher’s accident has had consequences, but has called for the Formula One legend’s family to be left alone. Schumacher suffered a skiing accident in December 2013 and was placed into a medically induced coma. Todt, who reportedly sees the seven-time F1 champion once a month, has called for privacy for Schumacher’s wife Corinna. Todt, 77, enjoyed a successful relationship with Schumacher when he served as Ferrari CEO. Schumacher won an five consecutive world titles between 2000 and 2004 during Todt’s time in charge. Last month, Eddie Jordan claimed Schumacher’s wife Corinna has lived ‘like a prisoner’ to keep his condition secret.
