Michael Schumacher ‘very altered’ after ski accident

Michael Schumacher is “very altered” six years on from the horror ski accident which left him with a shocking brain injury, claims a leading neurosurgeon.

The Formula One ace nearly died when he fell and cracked his head on a rock while skiing off-piste in the French Alps in December 2013.

Although the Ferrari icon is now out of his long-term coma, surgeon Nicola Acciari claims he will still be changed from the man his millions of fans remember, reports The Sun.

“We must imagine a person very different from the one we remember on the track, with a very altered and deteriorated organic, muscular and skeletal structure,” said Dr Acciari.

It was the one that got away for Shane van Gisbergen, who was by far and away the fastest on Sunday at the Superloop Adelaide 500.

Van Gisbergen claimed pole position for Race 2, and led 51 of 78 laps in the 250km marathon. Late into the race, he held a nine-second lead over countryman and rival Scott McLaughlin.

Early on, things began to unravel despite van Gisbergen’s standout pace. Having lost the lead into Turn 1 to McLaughlin, van Gisbergen suffered a suspected broken front anti-rollbar in the opening laps.

Superloop Adelaide 500 winner Scott McLaughlin has consoled hot rival Shane van Gisbergen after dual disasters cruelled the Red Bull Holden drivers’ race-winning efforts.

McLaughlin’s first win since last year’s controversial Bathurst 1000 thriller came when he least expected it, thanks to van Gisbergen being the recipient of two key dramas which ultimately resulted in a non-finish.

Van Gisbergen ceded the lead to McLaughlin from pole on the run to Turn 1, before regaining it through the first round of stops following a lapse by the Shell V-Power Racing crew.
