Michael Schumacher and Willy Weber. They were two peas in a pod for years. But then, tragedy struck. Schumacher, the former Formula 1 champ, had a devastating skiing accident. It’s been ten years now. Weber, now 81, hasn’t seen his old protégé since. He’s scared he might never get the chance again.

We’ve all heard the story. After the accident, Schumacher’s been cared for at home. His health status? A mystery. The Schumacher family’s been tight-lipped about one of the greatest Formula 1 drivers ever. Weber’s in the dark too. No news about Michael, no visits to the ex-Benetton, Ferrari, and Mercedes driver.

Weber’s heart aches. He told the German newspaper Express, “When I think of Michael now, I unfortunately have no hope of seeing him again. I have not received any positive news for ten years.” He’s coming to terms with the fact that he might have to let go of Schumacher. And he’s got regrets. He wishes he’d visited Schumacher at the Grenoble hospital right after the accident. “Of course, I very much regret that and blame myself. I should have visited Michael in the hospital,” Weber confessed. The pain of his accident still lingers.
