The motor racing world, and in particular Formula One, is known as a cut-throat business.

However tragedy is never far away in such a dangerous sport with legends such as Ayrton Senna and Dan Wheldon succumbing to racing accidents.

Schumacher, seven-time World Champion, is still in a medically-induced coma, fighting for his life after hitting his head on a rock while skiing off-piste.

Former colleagues, bosses and those in other racing sports have been quick to take to Twitter to share their thoughts on the legend.
