Ferrari fans plan birthday vigil for Schumacher
Ferrari fans will hold a silent 45th birthday tribute to Michael Schumacher outside his French hospital tomorrow, while the seven times Formula One world champion remains in a coma and fighs for his life after a skiing accident.
The Formula One team's facebook page said the Scuderia Ferrari Clubs wanted to show their support and were organising "a silent and respectful event all in red" at the Grenoble hospital where the German has been since his fall on Sunday.
Schumacher left Ferrari in 2006 but then came out of retirement in 2010 for a three-year comeback with Mercedes that ended in 2012.
The most successful driver in Formula One history suffered head injuries while skiing off piste during a family vacation in the Alpine resort of Meribel on Sunday.
His agent Sabine Kehm revealed yesterday that he was in a stable condition and it was too early to talk about his further prospects. No further update was given today, the day before his birthday.
