Brawn plays down Schumacher improvement quote
Ross Brawn has hit reverse gear after commenting on the mysterious health condition of F1 legend Michael Schumacher.
As one of the few people still let into the embattled former Ferrari and Mercedes driver's inner circle, the media recently seized on his quote that Schumacher has shown "encouraging signs" amid his recovery from brain injuries.
Now asked by the Guardian if he still visits the great German, Brawn answered: "We do.
"We go see him and hope and pray that one day he will make a recovery.
"I was quoted as saying he's improving and it was not what I really meant. The family are conducting his convalescence in private and I need to respect that.
"So I don't want to comment on his condition beyond saying we're extremely hopeful we'll see Michael as we knew him at some point in the future," Brawn added.
