Feb.5 (GMM/Inautonews.com) Michael Schumacher’s former boss has caused a stir by suggesting the health condition of the F1 legend is “not good”.

“I constantly get news about him and it is not good,” former Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo said.

The Italian was speaking at an anniversary event for the Quattroruote magazine, adding: “He was a great driver, but a ski accident has ruined him.”

Montezemolo’s comments might be interpreted as alarming, given the lack of official information about Schumacher’s condition following his return home to Switzerland in late 2014.

68-year-old Montezemolo, now the Alitalia airline chief and also heading Rome’s 2024 olympics bid, was also asked about Ferrari’s hopes for the 2016 F1 season.

“It’s a different Ferrari to my day, another thing, but I follow it. After all, it was and is my family and the most important thing in my life,” he said.
