not to side track - only cuz it's semi-relevant -

The first time I tried skiing was for high school senior trip.... we went to Devil's Head Wisconsin. Long story short I followed my friends up to an Intermediate slope, without any training or debriefing on what to do. Zero. I wiped out getting off the ski lift they had to pull me aside. It was probably peer pressure but I went down that slope, without any knowledge of how to stop. Talk about an adrenaline rush. I was going so fast and had no idea how to do anything - the only way I could stop was to wipe out, so that's what I did. Luckily there were no obstructions around - I came to a halt in the slush, got down, and had them give me some pointers about skiing and had fun for the rest of the trip, without any further incident.

No news, but saw a few articles this morning that Jean Todt visits Michael twice a month. That's about all the articles said.

Video blocked in my office, so not sure if there's anything of substance here:

https://www.express.co.uk/news/world...cher-statement

MICHAEL Schumacher’s manager has broken her silence to issue a rare emotional statement to celebrate the Formula 1 racing legend’s iconic record on the track.


The German legend’s health has been a closely guarded secret since he suffered catastrophic brain injuries in a skiing accident in 2013.

Mr Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm has always insisted the racing superstar’s condition is not a public matter.

But today she broke her silence to issue a rare new statement after a poster was unveiled to commemorate his iconic career, released in cooperation with the racing legend’s Keep Fighting Foundation.

On behalf of the Schumacher family, Ms Kehm said: "We are delighted to be partnering with ZOOM to raise money for the Keep Fighting Foundation.

“This is a stunning way to celebrate Michael's iconic career and by the way a very beautiful poster."

Schumacher's career saw him amass a record seven world titles and the most amount of wins (91) ever for a driver.

The poster depicts the 49-year-old driving his 2000 red Ferrari to victory on his way to his first title.

The German driver was placed in a medically induced coma for nearly six months but then in June 2014 was discharged from hospital and has since been receiving medical care at home near Lake Geneva in Switzerland.

Michael Schumacher’s medical bills are said to cost £115,000 a week from a team of 15 nurses and physicians.

However, his recovery and current condition has been shrouded in secrecy - with official updates few and far between.

The racing legend has reportedly been left paralysed following the tragic ski accident but those claims are unconfirmed.

It comes after his friend Jean Todt opened up on his grief over the racing legend’s condition in an emotional interview.

The president of the motor sport governing body FIA, said he visits the seven-time world champion “at least twice a month”.

Mr Todt, who worked alongside the racing ace throughout the bulk of his glittering career, is one of the few people that is allowed to visit the F1 driver at his home following the accident.

He said: “I simply say it is private. I see Michael, I love Michael. I see his family.

I wish the situation would be different.”

That's like 6 million pounds a year!

No expense spared for the GOAT of F1 (actually I'm not a super knowledgeable F1 person, is Schumacher considered a GOAT in F1 or are there historical figures/drivers that were even more impressive?), certainly can afford it of course....

Different eras, different circumstances, different heroes. Statistically, Schumacher is the GOAT. But there are alot more races these days than in the olden days.

Michael Schumacher Allegedly Headed to Texas Specialty Hospital, 'No Longer Bedridden' - The Drive

Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher will reportedly be flying to Dallas, Texas soon for treatment of his life-changing head injury sustained in a ski accident late 2013.

Schumacher sustained the injury on December 29, 2013, while skiing with his son Mick in the French Alps. Reportedly, the seven-time champion fell and hit his head on a rock, which doctors say might have killed him had he not been wearing a helmet. After two surgeries, Schumacher was placed into a medically induced coma to aid recovery from the accident, and he was gradually brought out of the coma in April of 2014.

Since September of that year, Schumacher has received care in his home, and official news on his condition has been sparse. The former racing driver's manager Sabine Kehm stated in May of 2015 that Schumacher's condition was improving, but offered no details. Schumacher's lawyer Felix Damm revealed in September of 2016 that Michael "cannot walk" in response to a tabloid's claim that Schumacher was on his feet.

Schumacher was reported in September of 2017 to be scheduled for transportation in secret to Dallas, Texas for treatment at a neurological clinic. According to The Daily Mail, this is only possible because Schumacher is claimed to be either intubated nor bedridden.

"We have a lot of experience with patients who are suffering this kind of trauma," said an employee of the unnamed clinic, identified as Mark Weeks, according to German publication Bravo. "There is probably no clinic in Europe that treats as many cases as we do."

There are at least six operation neurological treatment centers in Dallas, making identification of the clinic alleged to be Schumacher's destination difficult. One likely candidate is the Neurotherapy Center of Dallas, which touts treatment for sports injuries on its website.

The Schumacher family is known to own land in the area, having bought a 200-hectare ranch outside Dallas in 2012. If Michael Schumacher is to receive treatment in Texas, he might reside here while care continues. We can only hope that regardless of where he recovers that he has the sentience to watch the budding racing career of his son Mick, who looks ready to follow in his father's Ferrari footsteps.

In the past, but a kinda interesting and amusing story from Schumacher is his love affair with vacationing in the US.
His wife and him would spend the post F1 season vacationing and traveling though the US typically through the west and southwest.
Often they'd travel on Harley's stopping at various small hotels and boutique resorts, and travelled anonymously and without fanfare.
Read about this in a article, which did photo highlights of their journey. One time they stopped at Texas International Raceway where there was NASCAR fan drive event day.
Schumacher waited in line like everyone else to buy a few laps in a NASCAR, there was no special privilege.
The vast majority of the time, no one knew who they were apparently both enjoyed since they are very well known in Europe.
They bought a horse range years ago in Texas since his wife and daughter I believe both rode.
