Michael Schumacher in Critical Condition After Skiing Accident

"Michael Schumacher in Critical Condition After Skiing Accident"The Car Racing world is all abuzz with the latest news of Michael Schumacher and the terrible accident he had while skining in the French Alps this past weekend.

The latest update is that he is in critical condition.

Within minutes of the fall the seven-time Formula One World Champion was airlifted to Grenoble Hospital. Reports state he was wearing a helmet when he had the fall.

As you can imagine, Social Media is ablaze with comments about the accident.

David Croft, Sky F1 commentator tweeted: “Seen Michael Schumacher win plenty of great battles in his career this, the most important of all. Like all in F1, praying he pulls through.”

Bruno Senna Says “Wishing a full and speedy recovery for Michael Schumacher. Motor racing already had too many losses in 2013.”

Mario Andretti said it best… “Sadly and hopefully I follow news on Michael Schumacher. Let’s pray for him and also for the strength and expertise of doctors guiding his recover.” 

The team at CarRacing.com is praying for Michael’s full recovery. The winner of 91 races in his lifetime has the hardest race to win, yet. The race for his life. God Speed to Michael and the entire Schumacher family.”

On the Advice of Medical Professionals, Franchitti Calling it Quits

"After a serious crash that fractured his spine, broke his ankle and left him with a concussion, Dario Franchitti "retires" from car racing."After a serious crash that fractured his spine, broke his ankle and left him with a concussion, Dario Franchitti “retires”  from car racing.

During the last lap in the October 6, 2013 race at Houston, the Target Chip Ganassi Racing driver hit the wall.

Four time IndyCar Series winner (Franchitti also won the Indy 500 three times), was told by medical professionals that he must stop car racing if he wants to have any quality of life.

To say that the motorsports legend (Dario has 31 car racing victories) will be missed, is indeed an understatement.

Dario, we wish you well!.
