Michael Schumacher reportedly remains in a coma following his skiing accident late last year, and good friend Sebastian Vettel recently spoke emotionally about how he remains haunted by what's happened to the former Formula 1 racing driver.
Vettel spoke to German magazine, SpeedWeek, saying: "It's hard for me to talk about it. I'm still shocked. Michael's accident shows can change things such as fast."
Recently there have been a number of updates on Schumacher's condition, however, most have only gone to adding confusion as to his current condition.
There were conflicting reports, with some initially stating last month that Schumacher had awoken from his coma and had even recognized his wife.
However, those reports were later rubbished by journalist Nicola Pohl, who insisted that the world famous race driver was still in a coma.
Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm said earlier in April in a German broadcast that they planned not to give public updates anymore once Schumacher returns home from the hospital.
Kehm said, "Our plan and our desire would be that from the moment in which Michael can go into a rehab clinic, this media coverage will stop."
His manager also said recently, "We remain confident that Michael Schumacher will make it through and wake up."
Even though Schumacher is still fighting for his life, he is shockingly still facing a lawsuit filed by a Spanish biker regarding a road crash that took place weeks before his fall.
The alleged victim is asking for compensation for a broken wrist, his damaged clothes, and damage to his watch and motorbike in the alleged road crash on November 17.
If the trial is approved, police have confirmed that the German F1 seven-time title winner will not be obliged to attend court hearings. Investigators are also looking at the poor road lighting along the roundabout route that possibly caused the collision.
