I kinda saw this coming. After he was in the coma for a week with the head injuries they say he sustained. Damn shame. Spend his life in a very dangerous sport defying all odds. Then gets a major injury skiing. Crazy, no one know when there number will be called to lay it down for the final rest.

Michael Schumacher: 'only a miracle' can save him

Doctors treating Michael Schumacher and other medical experts have told his family that "only a miracle" can save him, sources have claimed.
The seven-time Formula One world champion suffered serious brain injuries after hitting a rock during a skiing accident in the French Alpine ski resort of Meribel in late December.
He is being treated in hospital in Grenoble where he has been in an artificially induced coma for a total of 69 days.
Sources close to his family say the 45-year-old driver's wife Corinna and his brother, Ralf Schumacher, have been consulting brain specialists throughout Europe and have been told that his chances of recovery are minimal.
The family is said to be concerned that the French doctors treating Schumacher have little hope that he will recover and now assume that he will remain in a vegetative state for the rest of his life.
Experts point out that most artificial comas last for an average of three weeks. Schumacher's management team has insisted that doctors are gradually reducing drug levels to bring the driver out of his artificial coma and that he is currently in a "wake up" phase.
In a statement released on Friday, Schumacher's management team insisted there had been no change. "Michael is still in a wake up phase, the situation has not altered," said the driver's management team spokeswoman Sabine Kehm
At the management team's request, the Grenoble hospital treating Schumacher has kept news about his condition to a minimum. However sources close to his family say that the driver's prognosis is bleak. "The family has been told that only a miracle can bring him back now," a senior German journalist reporting on the Schumacher case said. " He is in a bad way but until the family issues a formal statement, we cannot publish anything," he added.
Another source added: "Doctors have given it to them straight. Miracles sometimes happen but there is little hope that he will come out of this."
A fortnight ago, Germany's Focus magazine reported that complications had obliged doctors to halt Schumacher's wake up process and that the driver had been put back into a coma. However Schumacher's management team denied the report.
Coma experts have stressed that the past week should have been crucial for Schumacher's wake up process as doctors would have been hoping for a sign that he was gradually becoming aware of his surroundings.
However last Sunday, the Schumacher family is reported to have spent Corinna Schumacher's 45th birthday gathered around the comatose driver's hospital bed praying in vain for him to acknowledge their presence.
Doctors say that the greatest risk facing the driver while he remains in a coma and unable to swallow properly, is the possibility that he will contract pneumonia as a result of his lungs being filled with fluid.
Should Schumacher manage to emerge from his coma, there appears to be little likelihood that he would be able to live a normal, active life.
Gary Hartstein, a former Formula One doctor, told the German media last week: "The majority of patients who come out of a coma alive after this amount of time suffer severe disabilities."

Its a shame. Being so young i can say that i literally knew his name before any other professional driver. Kind of weird to think about it really, to be so iconic that 5 year olds know you name when they hadnt ever seen you race.

Yep, this is certainly a crap situation. I remember thinking it was a hoax when I first heard of this accident. F1 has always been the main 4 wheel sport I've tracked. I remember watching Schumacher emerge on Benetton, maybe Jordan, but that may be from biographies. I used to set my alarm, or stay up all night to catch the races back in the 80's and 90's. Fandom was rough pre internet, pre ESPN.
