MERC AMBASSADOR IN RECOVERY: Michael Schumacher will remain Mercedes’ brand ambassador . Image: AFP

STUTTGART, Germany - Mercedes has vowed to stick with Michael Schumacher as the Formula 1 legend continues his recovery from a skiing fall in December 2013.
In June, as Schumacher remained in intensive care, one of the great German's personal sponsors - the bottled water brand Rosbacher - said it would end its advertising deal with the former Ferrari and Mercedes driver.
Daimler chairman Dieter Zetsche, however, said Mercedes-Benz is not looking to terminate its contract with brand ambassador Schumacher despite the seven time world champion's continuing recovery in a Swiss rehabilitation hospital.
Zetsche told Bild am Sonntag newspaper, "we are pleased with the positive development. We hope fervently that it continues," referring to the reported improvement in Schumacher's condition.
When asked about Mercedes' commitment to Schumacher despite his injuries, Zetsche answered: "We have given no thoughts to changing something in the contract."
He said he had not visited Schumacher in hospital or rehabilitation since the skiing accident due to his "highest respect" for the family's privacy.
