  • Three Years After Near-Fatal Accident, Michael Schumacher's Legacy Lives On

    It is three years since Michael Schumacher's life-changing skiing accident, but his legacy remains undimmed. The Formula One legend and champion has been credited with helping to lay the foundations for Mercedes' three years of dominance from 2014 to 2016. Former Mercedes team principal Ross Brawn says Schumacher had an important influence on the team, which has also won three consecutive constructor crowns. Brawn engineered Schumacher's seven world titles with Benetton and Ferrari as the teams' technical director. He told CNN one of Schumacher's strengths was that he put in time at the factory working with the backroom team preparing to race. Schumacher's medical status still remains unclear. He suffered serious head injuries in a freak skiing accident on December 29th, 2013. The 47-year-old continues to receive specialist treatment at his home in Switzerland.
