Another tragedy emanating from the first. What a shame.

What is wrong with people, our society seems to be getting more and more populated with horrible people who would do anything for a quick buck, or tens of thousands in this case.. WFT! Or is it that with the media we get to hear and read much more? and it has always been like that?

I guess if the media weren't willing to pay sums of money like that for leaked information it wouldn't happen so much.

Some people have no limit of how far they will stoop. Sickens me that someone wants to make money from another's tragedy.

People buy the papers, the papers pay for the information, people steal the information to give to the papers.

Shame his family can't be left to look after Shuey.

Holy thread resurrection

That doesn't read well. They won't say what condition he's in. Surely if there was anything positive to say, they would?

Two years later and he's not walking yet??

If he hasn't by now, he's not going to. Shame.

He's still fighting apparently.

I'm not sure what that is supposed to mean. Any neurological recovery takes places within the first 18 to 24 months.

I would translate "still fighting" as "still breathing, and that's about all he'll ever do".

Poor guy. He is a legend very skilful driver but I think if he's still in a coma maybe enough is enough?

One of the most talented drivers. The best? Hard to say. He and Senna didn't have enough time on the track together. Both were ruthless.

I dunno...Senna had 40+ wins...Schumacher had 90+.....that's pretty compelling, don't you think??

Always difficult to make these judgements as the car and opposition can slew these dramatically. No one comes close to Fangio. Schumacher has a better win ratio than Senna but Vettel is better than both.
