Michael Schumacher Recovery Moving Between Good and Bad Days, Says Former Teammate Johnny Herbert

Towards the end of this month, the fatal skiing accident of Michael Schumacher in the French Alps would mark its third year.

Thus far, there has been no clear good news or full update regarding his health condition or the status of his recovery at his home in Lake Geneva, Switzerland.

But a former teammate at Benetton of the German legendary racer, Johnny Herbert, recently came out to say that what he has been hearing as of late is that Schumi’s health recovery is moving between good and bad days, reports the Daily Star of UK.

Without really going into the details, Herbert is likely alluding to the possibility that there are days where the seven-time F1 world champion is showing signs of positive recovery but there are also days where he seems to exude otherwise.

A very driven person

But instead of focusing on the current state of Schumacher, Herbert decided to talk about Michael as the world knows him prior to his accident.

Herbert said that Schumacher was very driven. He said that the German racer knows what he wanted and how he needed to get it.

Michael’s former teammate also described working with him as difficult because of the F1 legend’s determination to win at all costs.

He explained that his only bugbear when he was with Michael Schumacher at Benetton was he knew Schumi’s mentality but it was down to someone in the team to say: ‘No, Michael, this is a team and we’re together and we have to do the same things on each car.’

Following his father’s footsteps

Meanwhile, Mick Schumacher seems to be continuing to follow the footsteps of his father. Latest reports have it that Mick may be on the verge of joining the Mercedes junior program, which could be a breakthrough for the 17-year-old young racer at he moves up the ladder and into Formula 1, details Yibada.

Following the recent and surprising retirement of Nico Rosberg, Mick Schumacher could be in a perfect position to take over. He currently leads the MRF Challenge Formula 2000 championship after four races.

The young Schumacher’s potential entry into Mercedes was also suggested due to movements from within the ranks.

Further supporting the rise of Mick Schumacher to Formula 3 competition is Prema Powerteam boss Rene Rosin. A lot of that had to do with the fact that Mick was part of Prema’s F4 team that finished runner-up in both the German and Italian championship.

Rosin stated that Mick is ready for Formula 3 but it is not his decision to make but more on what Mick plans to do next year.

While things seem to be falling into place for Mick which would have made his father really proud, Michael continues to wage his own battle at his Lake Geneva mansion, hoping for a miraculous recovery since that dreadful 2013 skiing accident.

Meanwhile, there has been no official update as of yet on the health conditions of seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher but latest reports appear to show a lot of promise.

A recent report from a UK news website said that Ferrari technical head Ross Brawn recently paid a visit to the German racer and the former has noted that Schumi is already showing great signs of recovery and improvement.

However, this supposed new report should be taken with a fine grain of salt as the Schumacher family had already made it clear that they would not divulge any information about the racing legend’s health condition or recovery progress.

Michael Schumacher

Just recently, the family even sued a German publication for reporting a few months ago that Michael Schumacher can already sit and raise his arms, which was not true at all.

The Schumacher family has decided to keep Michael away from the public’s eyes while he is still recovering.

However, it seems like his PR team created his official Facebook and Instagram accounts in an effort to push some encouragement for Schumacher.
