Ferrari owners are being asked to show up to the hospital with their cars

Ferrari has announced plans to pay tribute to Michael Schumacher with a "silent and respectful event" at the Grenoble University Hospital where he is recovering from a skiing accident.

In a post on the Scuderia Ferrari Facebook page, the company is calling for Ferrari owners to show up with their cars to celebrate Schumacher's 45th birthday tomorrow.

The event is being scheduled by the Scuderia Ferrari Club and interested owners are being asked to contact their local club for additional information if they can attend.

As we have previously reported, Schumacher remains in critical condition following a skiing accident on December 29th. Earlier this week, doctors said Schumacher's condition has improved but "we cannot say that he is out of danger."

Does anyone realize that MSC's current employer is Mercedes AG, not Ferrari SpA?

Michael Schumacher will remain forever as Ferrari image. It does not matter what company it is now. Like Loeb and Citroen, like Gymkhana guy and Ford. This is where they made their carrier shine and stick into collective memory.

Yeah... It's still a cheap marketing stunt from Ferrari, IMO.

if he dies, Ferrari is going to cheat owners for another publicity event like having 500 Ferrari circling the graveyard

They should gather round the hospital and rev all the engines at the same time, that should wake him up from the coma !

He is in an artificially induced coma and can be woken up at any time.

That coma has it's medical reasons. It's better this way in his case. I hope he will recover and learn to take it easy, and be more with his family. He was already gone too much from their lives as a F1 driver.

I think he should get an one-off car that is made in his honor 100%, even if he stays alive and well. He has done so much for Ferrari and the motor sport in general. I wish so much he'll be well and able to live his live proud and happy.

Sorry, I accidentally gave your comment a thumbs down while trying to click thumbs up on my iPhone. Anyway, I second what you said and would like to add that I could also see them producing a special production model similar to what Lamborghini did with the Valentino Balboni edition.

I also think a M.S. special edition should be made, but i'm taking into account what people from marketing at ferrari brain processm and their ideas. Usually when an honored person dies the organization does something in his/her name. For war heroes or soldiers in general they receive "upgrades" and medals, etc...They will make that edition for sure, in the future, but i don't know when.

No matter who he ended his career with, his name will always be attached to Ferrari. A short run road car would be a great homage to his career with the manufacturer. Let him help design it, spec it, and sign each one built. Unlike most manufacturers, Ferrari relishes its' history and the men who got them to the top...Schumi is definitely one of the greats not only in Ferrari's history, but motor racing as a whole. AND HE'S THE STIG!!!
