Lewis Hamilton has given an interview on Michael Schumacher, who is in a medically induced coma after a skiing accident, in which he explains his belief that all things happen for a reason and that the Formula 1 family will carry the German through.
F1 has been rocked by the Schumacher news. His accident at the end of December left the 45-year-old fighting for his life, and attempts to wake him up have been slow.
However, there has been a hint of good news from the hospital in France where he's staying. The last message from his spokesperson, Sabine Kehm, indicated there are some "small, encouraging signs" of a recovery, per BBC News.
Hamilton suggested in the interview, which you can watch above, that F1 will support his recovery and in turn he will draw strength from the sport:
He's a legend in the sport, you know, who has achieved so much, a very motivated individual.
So I feel like all things happen for a reason, I think that this is an experience that will really show his character and depth and even more so than any other experiences he's had.
Some reports and reaction have focused on Hamilton's wording, but you can make your own judgement on the thought behind his wishes by watching the interview.
