2013-12-31

The racing world has ground to a complete halt following the accident of retired Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher suffered while skiing in the French Alps.

The seven-time world champion had the chance to meet Pope John Paul II in January 2005.

"It's something very special it's great for us to have been able to be here. And to hopefully take all the emotions into the future for us, and transmit it into motivation, and, obviously, as well as success. That's the wishes from the Pope to us.”

During his meeting with the Ferrari team, John Paul II described the value of sports. The Italian megabrand gave the Pope a miniature model of the racecar Schumacher was driving when he won his seventh world championship.
