Race Car re: FINAL Report on Schumachers' Health as Brother Ralf Speaks Out

Michael Schumacher's Ex-Manager Angry at Being Left in Dark as He Slams Family's Lies

Michael Schumacher was left in a coma after suffering a bad skiing accident in 2013, and since returning home his family have chosen to keep his condition private

Daily Mirror 22 JUL 2022

Michael Schumacher's former manager, Willi Weber

The former manager of Michael Schumacher has accused the family of the F1 legend of telling him 'lies' as they continue to keep details of his condition private.

Schumacher, 52, won seven world titles in a stellar career, but long before he was prominent in the sport Willi Webber had spotted his potential. The German managed his compatriot for much of his career, and was largely credited for turning the star into one of the most highest-paid sports stars on the planet.

However, Webber has now lashed out after claiming he's been prevented from visiting Schumacher since his harrowing skiing accident in 2013. The incident, which took place on a family holiday in Grenoble, left the star in a medically induced coma.

He was later transferred to Lausanne University Hospital in Switzerland before being released to continue his rehabilitation at home. His wife Corrina and family have since opted not to comment publicly on his welfare.

Last September, the Netflix documentary Schumachergave an insight into the impact the ordeal was having on the family, but stopped short of providing an update on the Ferrari icon himself. And Weber, 80, has now lamented the apparent secrecy.

"I tried hundreds of times to contact Corinna [Schumacherís wife] and she didnít answer," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "I called Jean Todt [Schumacherís ex-boss at Ferrari] to ask him if I should go to the hospital and he told me to wait Ė itís too early.

ďI called the next day and no one answered. I didnít expect behaviour like that and Iím still angry about it. They kept me out, telling me itís too early, well now itís too late. Itís been nine years. Maybe they should just say it the way it is."

Webber, who has also managed the likes of Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer, did concede that he had empathy with the family's initial stance, but not with what he claims to be dishonesty: "I could understand the situation initially as I always did everything I could for Michael to protect his private life. But since then we have only heard lies from them."

Weber, who raced in Formula 3 before going into management, also worked with Schumacherís brother Ralf. And he also spoke about his own turmoil over the plight of his former client.

is to receive prestigious award as tragic F1 star is honoured

ďYears after the accident, I said to myself to just look out for the family as I couldnít change things. He was like a son to me. Even today it hurts me to talk about it.Ē

On the Netflix documentary, Corrina said: ďI miss Michael every day. But it's not just me who misses him. It's the children, the family, his father, everyone around him. I mean, everybody misses Michael, but Michael is here. Different, but he's here and that gives us strength, I find."

Schumacher's son Mick is currently in his second F1 season, driving for Haas. His last two races in Britain and Austria have brought up the first two top-10 finishes of his career.
