Michael Schumacher health update: Ex Ferrari boss says F1 champ's condition is 'not good'

(REUTERS/KIM KYUNG-HOON)Mercedes Formula One driver Michael Schumacher of Germany stands inside his team garage during the first practice session of the Japanese F1 Grand Prix at the Suzuka circuit October 5, 2012.

"Unfortunately it is not good," this is what old Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo told journalists in Milan about the condition of multiple Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher, The Guardian reports.

Last Thursday, the former Ferrari boss mentioned briefly on Schumacher's health condition to the reporters in Italy.

"Michael was a great driver, and we experienced a long time together in both our personal and professional lives," Luca said. "But life is really strange. He was the most successful driver of Ferrari and in his career he had only one accident, in 1999. But unfortunately a fall in a ski accident has broken him."

However, he declined to elaborate on what he meant about "not good." BBC Sport also tried to reach Schumacher's official spokesperson Sabine Kehm regarding Luca's statement, but she refused to comment.

Last month, Kehm denied Bunte's, a German magazine, report that the F1 racer has managed "make a couple of steps" and "raise an arm."

Kehm was forced to clarify the magazine's claims and has called such speculations as "irresponsible," as it pertains to the privacy of Schumacher and it could also give "false hopes" to the people around him.

The F1 legend's health condition has been the concern of his family and his fans for over two years, after suffering from severe head injuries after a skiing accident in France, December 2013. It happened during a holiday with his wife and two children. He was in coma for months before transferring to his home by Lake Geneva in September 2014.

Schumacher's career statistics speaks so much of his greatness in his field. He was in teams Jordan and Benetton before signing to Ferrari from 1996 until his retirement in 2006. Before he retired, he became championed seven races from 1994-1995 and an impressive winning streak from 2000-2004. During the course of his career, he had 155 podium finishes.
