An ever present figure in the French town of Grenoble, FIA President Jean Todt is doing all he can to help the seriously injured Michael Schumacher.

Todt, who shared so much success with Schumacher as team boss at Ferrari, often makes the near 600km trip from his office in Paris to be with the 45-year-old as doctors continue the slow process of waking up the great German from his over month long coma.

The Frenchman is one of only a few people the Schumacher family have allowed to be with the 7-time champion as he continues to fight the head injuries sustained from his skiing accident late last year.

“Michael and his family are very close friends of mine,” he told the German newspaper Die Welt.

“He is an important part of my life. And now he is seriously injured.”

Todt has also pledged to give “every conceivable type of assistance” to the Schumacher family during this difficult time.

“Often that is just to be there for them,” he explained.

The admiration Todt has for Schumacher is clear when you consider he only has one picture in his office, in that picture is his wife Michelle Yeoh, his son Nicolas and Schumacher.

As the millions of motorsport fans continue to wait for news on the legend’s condition, Todt explained why he constantly makes the trip to and from Grenoble, to be with Schumacher.

“I think he would do it for me, if I had an accident like that,” he said. “I am sure Michael would be here for me.”
