"Mick Does Not Say He Is Sad About His Father." Michael Schumacher’s Son, Mick, Is Coping With His Father’s Condition, And It's Hard
‘Like father like son’ are the only words that can be used to describe Michael Schumacher’s dynamic with his son, Mick. For anyone who follows Formula One racing, Schumacher was not just a racer. He was arguably one of the most influential racers in the history of the sport. His status is so prominent that, even though his last race was nearly six years ago, he still holds the record for the most world championship titles, racking up seven in his career.
While the legendary Schumacher has been out of the public eye due to a skiing accident in December 2013, he has remained an icon. It would seem that he is also an inspiration for his son, Mick, who is a driver like his father. However, while Mick was pretty close to his father and was with him when he had the accident, he has remained awfully silent about his father's condition.
"Mick does not say he is sad about his father."
According to Nicklas Nielsen, a close friend to Mick Schumacher, while the young driver does not openly share his feelings about his father’s situation, it is true that he finds it hard to cope with it on a personal level.
Speaking to the Danish newspaper BT, Nielsen said that:
Mick does not say he is sad about his father. He just said sometimes that it is hard.
These words reveal that while Mick (19) has been private about his father’s condition, he is still learning to cope with the unfortunate realities of the accident and subsequent recovery.
But, although Nielsen appeared to have insight into the real situation surrounding the racing star, he also admitted that it is hard to decipher his true condition since the situation is rarely spoken about.
It may be that Michael is on his way back and will only come out again when he is completely rehabilitated. But it’s hard to say what’s going on.
Michael Schumacher’s skiing accident was horrific
Reports on Schumacher’s accident revealed that Mick and his father were skiing at the Meribel Resort in the French Alps, where the F1 ace fell and hit his head on a rock.
While Schumacher (49) was wearing a ski helmet, the fall from the accident was severe and the head injury serious. To ensure that he would survive his injuries, the driver was put into a medically induced coma, and on March 2014, his doctors reported that his condition was stable. Since then, Schumacher has been recovering from home and according to recent reports by his wife, he is still fighting.
The legendary sportsman’s condition may remain uncertain, but it's clear that he is loved by his family. We hope that he will maintain his fighting spirit and overcome his injuries.
