The Formula 1 world has been in perpetual shock since 29 December when Michael Schumacher injured himself severely while on a skiing accident, and since then has been in an induced coma in a hospital in Grenoble.

Fernando Alonso and Schumacher were great rivals on track, and it was the Spaniard whose two back-to-back titles in 2005 and 2006 ended Schumacher’s incredible streak of five world titles in a row.

The tragedy of the situation has touched Alonso who revealed to CNN, “I think we are (all) still in shock, after nearly one month. The day that I received the news I could not believe it, to be honest, because he is not a man that you think will have any problem.”

“He was the man that can beat anything and can win any race and can do anything without any worries, so to see him and to see the accident…”

“We are all hoping every day to have some good news coming from the hospital…all drivers have huge respect because he was the man that motivated us and he was the man who we were looking at when we were go-kart drivers,” declared Alonso. (GP247)

    It was the 29th December, not January as stated:
