MILAN (AP) Former Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has expressed his sadness at the condition of Michael Schumacher, two years after the former Formula One champion was seriously injured in a skiing accident.

Montezemolo was asked at a media event Thursday in Milan if he had any news about Schumacher, who sustained severe head injuries in France in December 2013 and is being cared for at his home in Switzerland.

Montezemolo says: “Unfortunately it’s not good, it’s not as good as one would have hoped.”

The former Ferrari president adds “it’s by one of life’s chances that he finds himself still in this condition.”

Schumacher’s manager, Sabine Kehm, declined to comment on his condition when contacted by The Associated Press.

The German driver won a record seven F1 titles and 91 races.
