The legend of Formula 1 was involved in a ski accident in 2013 and updates were scarce
& # 39; I think it is mega to drive this car in Hockenheim, & # 39; said Mick Schumacher. & # 39; I will be able to drive one of the strongest cars in Formula 1 history there. A grin creeps into my face. & # 39;
Four of Michael Schumacher's 91 F1 races came to Hockenheim, while his son won the FIA Formula 3 European Championship on track in the Rhine Valley last year.
& # 39; It will be an emotional moment to see Mick at the wheel of a car linked to so many great memories, & # 39; said Ross Brawn, managing director for motorsport. & # 39; The F2004 was a fantastic car, requiring 15 victories and both championship titles in a season that can be considered the culmination of a golden period. & # 39;
In 2013, Michael Schumacher hit his head on a rock while skiing with his son. He later came from an induced coma, but updates are scarce since he left the hospital in 2014 to be cared for as a private individual in his home in Switzerland.
