The former Ferrari team principal also added that he watches races with the German driver. “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,” Todt said.
Todt previously mentioned that he sees Schumacher ‘twice a month’. “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,” Todt added.

It is the most noteworthy non-military personnel honour accessible to those born within the region and can be granted to any individual who has made an extraordinary contribution to the world.
The ceremony occurred in Cologne, around six kilometres from Hurth, where Schumacher and his sibling Ralf were conceived. Schumacher’s son, Mick, didn’t go on the grounds that he was supposedly unwell yet, a Formula 1 driver himself for the Haas group, his support in the upcoming French Grand Prix is expressed not to be under danger.
After giving the speech as the family were given the honour, Todt, a dear companion of Schumacher’s since their time cooperating during a brilliant spell at Ferrari, addressed the German TV channel RTL.
Meanwhile, Schumacher has not been seen or heard from openly since a skiing mishap in 2013 in which he experienced serious head wounds, and his condition has remained strictly confidential from that point onward.
After collecting the prestigious award, Todt added, “If it was emotional for you, you can imagine how emotional it was for me. Emotional, but at the same time a great pride to be able to talk about Michael.”
He even spoke about his relations with the Schumacher family and said, “You have people around you who are just special. And in a way, Michael is also very special. Corinna, Mick and Gina have also become special to me. They have all become family to me, to my wife and to my son.”
While speaking for Michael’s wife Corinna, Todt added, “She is steady, she is reliable, she is dedicated, she is humble. It’s in difficult times you see the real person.” Lastly, Todt even spoke for Schumacher himself and said, “Sometimes success and money changes you. But Michael has never changed. He’s so strong.”
