Michael Schumacher family issues charity statement

Published

on

MICHAEL Schumacher’s family have announced their support for a new charity initiative inspired by the recovering Formula 1 champion.

The family of the seven-time F1 world champion has recently refused to issue public comment on the 49-year-old’s health, but have now issued just their second public statement of the past six months.

A statement from Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm was released around the world on Thursday (AEDT) announcing the family’s involvement and approval of a specially released charity poster celebrating the German racer’s legendary career.

The poster has been released through charity organisation Keep Fighting in connection with online store Zoom to raise funds for the Never Give Up charity registered in Germany.

Kehm has repeatedly refused to provide updates on Schumacher’s health, leading to confusion surrounding his current whereabouts, believed to be in Lake Geneva, Switzerland.

Five-time Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton has been forced to clarify his comments about India being a “poor place”.

He told the BBC: “I’ve been to India before to a race which was strange because India was such a poor place yet we had this massive, beautiful grand prix track made in the middle of nowhere. I felt very conflicted when I went to that grand prix.”

Published

on

Formula One has rejected Daniel Ricciardo’s suggestion to change the “unfair” system surround the FIA weighbridge incident after Sebastian Vettel’s penalty at the Brazilian Grand Prix.

The German avoided a grid-place penalty but was given a reprimand and fined €25,000 for “destroying” the weighbridge after failing to obey instructions when being called in for a random check at the beginning of Q2.

Vettel had yet to set a laptime at that point because Ferrari had ordered him to pit and change his tyres, sparking his understandable frustration.
