Michael Schumacher's former F1 boss updates fans after visiting him three times a week
| Last updated
Michael Schumacher's former F1 boss at Ferrari has given fans an update on his condition.
Jean Todt is one of the few people able to regularly visit Schumacher at his home in Switzerland, where the F1 legend continues to recuperate from serious injuries suffered after falling while skiing in 2013.
During his time as general manager of Ferrari's racing division, he recruited Schumacher to their F1 team - a move which would turn out to be a stroke of genius as the German driver enjoyed incredible success on the track.
The pair's friendship has continued long after they both retired from racing and Todt occasionally provides updates about Schumacher's health to keep fans in the loop.
He has also thanked fans for their continued support of Schumacher as F1 devotees around the world have constantly wished for his recovery.
In Todt's most recent update on Schumacher's condition, he told Bild that the legendary racing driver is in 'the best of hands' when it came to his care.
He also said that at some times, he's able to go round to see Schumacher 'three times a week' to check in on him and his family.
He said: "I'm happy that the fans, not only in Germany, think of him so much. People ask so much about Michael. The fans should know that he is in the best of hands.
"In the best situation he can be and surrounded by people who love him. As long as I am in this world, I will always visit him.
"Sometimes we see each other three times a week, sometimes not for a whole month. They are my friends and we are in constant contact. Whatever I can do for the Schumacher family, I'll do it."
Todt previously told F1 fans that he watches races with Schumacher on TV, which could mean he's seen his son Mick competing and driving for the Haas team.
Schumacher suffered a traumatic brain injury after falling and hitting his head on a rock while skiing in the French alps in December 2013.
As part of his treatment he was placed in a medically-induced coma until June 2014 and a few months later he was allowed to return home where he continued to receive care.
The legendary driver, who won seven F1 world championships over a glittering career, has not been seen in public since then and updates about his condition have been scarce.
Schumacher's wife Corrina said her husband was 'different now' while accepting an award on his behalf earlier this year, saying it was important to her that he was able to enjoy his private life as much as possible.
