Michael Schumacher still watches Formula One races from home, an ex-Ferrari boss has revealed.

The seven-time world champion, 53, has not been seen in public view for more than seven years after a skiing accident in the French Alps left him with devastating brain injuries.

But Jean Todt, a close friend to the German, says Schumacher still has a keen interest in the sport.

Mr Todt also revealed that he watches some races with Schumacher from his home in Switzerland.

He said: ”I don't miss Michael, I see him.

“Yes, it's true, I watch races with Michael.

“But sure, I guess what I miss is what we used to do together,” he told RTL.

Mr Todt added: “I don't leave him alone. Him, Corinna, the family, we've had so many experiences together.

“The beauty of what we have experienced is part of us and it goes on.

”Sometimes success and money changes you. But Michael has never changed. He's so strong.”
