Todt remains at Schumacher’s bed-side at Grenoble hospital

FIA president Jean Todt remains an almost ever-present figure in Grenoble, almost 600 kilometres from his Paris office, while the great Michael Schumacher – one of the former Ferrari top man’s’ closest friends – lies grievously injured after a late December skiing fall.

Ever since Schumacher’s coma began just after Christmas, the diminutive 67-year-old Todt has fought through the crowds of reporters in order to be with the German.

He is one of very few of Schumacher friends who has been welcomed to Grenoble by the anguished family.

Indeed, the mutual admiration is obvious. On the wall of Todt’s office, only one photo is present – featuring his wife Michelle Yeoh, his son Nicolas, and seven time World Champion Schumacher.
