Unfortunately, sometimes life isn't fair. We have to accept it. When I see his children Gina-Maria and Mick, my heart smiles. If someone in the family is looking for my advice, I'm there. They go their own way.

The Schumacher brothers, Michael and Ralf, shared a remarkable decade in Formula 1, racing side by side for 10 seasons.

During this period, Michael Schumacher achieved legendary status, securing his record-matching 7 World Championships with both Benetton and Ferrari. Meanwhile, Ralf Schumacher notched up 6 Grand Prix victories, competing for teams such as Jordan, Williams, and Toyota. The unique and enduring presence of the Schumacher siblings added a distinct chapter to the rich history of Formula 1.

Former teammate to Michael Schumacher claims the F1 legend’s TERRIFYING ski accident changed brother Ralf forever

Former Formula 1 driver Johnny Herbert, who was once a teammate of seven-time World Champion Michael Schumacher at Benetton, has suggested that Ralf Schumacher, Michael’s brother, underwent a significant transformation following Michael’s tragic skiing accident. Michael Schumacher clinched his first World Championship title in 1994 while partnering with Herbert at Benetton.

Herbert spoke about the change he noticed in Ralf Schumacher’s personality following this horrific accident.

Ralf has had to do a lot of things for and with the family given what happened to Michael. He has matured. He is very different now as a person compared to his time as a Formula 1 driver. He has become a genuinely compassionate individual, significantly altered by the ongoing situation with his brother.

Both Ralf Schumacher and Michael Schumacher hold the distinction of being the sole siblings in Formula 1 history to achieve victories in Grand Prix races. The Schumacher family has kept Michael’s health status under tight wraps, and Herbert, along with well-wishers from across the globe, extends their support and strength to the entire Schumacher family during this challenging period.
