But as soon as the recovery phase begins and the public is also excluded from the scene –it took place in the hospital or now in its own four walls –there is no longer any claim,”said Damm.
Understanding for the interest in shoemakers nevertheless.”There is no more claim,”said Damm. I can understand that there are people who are interested, who have a serious interest in knowing how he is doing,”he said in a documentation of Bavarian radio about Schumacher. On the other hand, however, it must also be understood and seen that, since he is now no longer racing, he has a right to live in his privacy.”
Damm also stressed in the dpa conversation that”unfortunately there is no possibility”. “to draw a line through an explanation given however”.
