  • Jesus, originally I was like "just a slow news day" but now it seems to be getting worse. Really hope he is ok

    http://rmcsport.bfmtv.com/info/557795/schumacher-victime-d-un-accident-ski/ This is where it originated. They seem legit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BFM_TV


    EDIT: BBC site says the expert who arrived recently is a mate of his and Todt's which is probably a good sign.

    Is that article not just going by the info in the previous news article though? Can't read it myself but just going by the times on the articles.




  • To be honest I'm still not convinced of the legitimacy of the info, hoping it's bollocks as it still hasn't been picked up by any reputable sources.

    I'm with you on that - it's just the fact that it is still up there on Sky above stories like a girl dying after being found on fire in the road, suicide bomber claiming 15 lives in Russia etc - you have to wonder is there more behind the story that hasn't been broken yet. Fingers crossed though. I've been known to be wrong before !




  • Latest news coming up on sky news at 9




  • Good to see that it's not as serious as first mentioned.

    Speedy recovery to the main man.

    Fingers crossed




  • Trying to keep up to date on twitter and whilst the majority of people seem to be human, it's shocking how many absolute cu*ts there are on it.

  • Just disgusting comments/jokes which I wouldn't even repeat.




  • -edit nvm, think it's been like that for awhile.





  • Sky have just said the same. Come on Schumi.. just one more victory and pull through!




  • Gary Harstein, the doctor who replaced Sid Watkins as the F1 doctor, has tweeted a few bits about the injury:
    "It's quite well known that extradural hematomas, a kind of cerebral hemorrhage, can leave a lucid interval after injury. Then as the hematoma forms, the sudden increase in pressure causes sudden and dramatic symptoms. Pressure must be relieved rapidly. This is done with a neurosurgical intervention. Then the victim is observed in an ICU environment. Quality of recovery depends on: 1) severity of initial injury 2) acuteness and amplitude of pressure rise when hematoma forms 3) rapidity with which it is drained 4) quality of neuro intensive care and rehab"




  • I lost interest in F1 after Senna's death but I've always had huge respect for what Schumacher achieved over the years. I hope and pray he makes a full recovery.




  • Crap, hope he pulls through, he was such a hero of mine in the glory days.




  • Hope he pulls through.
    Was always my favourite F1 driver when I watched back in the day.




  • Damn, hope he recovers well.




  • Sky news saying he's in a coma

    "Come on Michael, give us one of those race stints at pure qualifying pace to win through, like you used to. You can do it."




  • Was hoping this would blow over but the news has gotten worse over the day. Worried now




  • Spent many a weekend glued to the tv as a kid watching him race. I really hope he pulls through. No doubt in my mind he is the best driver I've ever seen.

    I got a little worried earlier when Sky were still leading with the story, but I didnt expect it to be life threatening. Come on Schumi.




  • Love him, best F1 driver ever.

    Come on Michael.




  • Genuinely shocked at this news. Michael schumacher is my childhood hero, still remember at age 11 setting the alarm clock at 4am for all those far eastern races to watch him compete.
    Can't believe he is in a coma...
    Get well soon Michael. Truely amazing sportsman and even more amazing racer.




  • Jaysus, I do hope he pulls through with no lasting injuries.




  • Hope he pulls through this.

    Fair play, I'd rather not even be aware of that kind of shite. It's all attention seeking, immature, [email protected] {apologies to the mods, but jeez, people can be sickening at times}.

    Fingers crossed here




  • Shocking news, saw it on the bbc site in work earlier but read that it wasn't serious. Hope he pulls through.

  • Let's hope the spirit of Hungary 98 helps him pull through
