Michael Schumacher’s former Ferrari team boss Jean Todt has sensationally revealed that he makes constant visits to see his old friend. Speaking to Italian outlet Corriere della Serra, Todt said that he sees Schumacher “at least twice a month”.
“I don’t leave him alone,” Todt said. “Him, Corinna, the family — we’ve had so many experiences together. The beauty of what we have experienced is part of us and it goes on.”
Todt was questioned about Schumacher after mentioning the German by name when asked what he will get up to after finishing his tenure as president of the FIA.
“I have plenty of commitments,” Todt said. “Road safety for the UN, president of Aung San Suu Kyi’s foundation, and then the International Peace Institute.
“I’m on the boards of banks, cinemas and hotels. And I am proud to have created the Brain and Spinal Cord Research Institute, to which Michael Schumacher contributed.”
Schumacher and Todt formed a vital partnership that saw the German driver win seven world championships over ten years with Ferrari. The seven championships remained a stand-alone record until Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton equalled it in 2020.
