Former Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher has been admitted to a Paris hospital for “secret treatment”.

Le Parisien newspaper reported Schumacher has been in the hospital’s cardiovascular surgery department since Monday and is in the care of cardiac surgeon Professor Philippe Menasché, who specialises in cell therapy to treat heart failure.

Schumacher is expected to stay in the hospital for two days.

The Ferrari great turned 50 on January 3 but has not been seen in public since a skiing accident in the French Alps five years ago that left him with severe head injuries and in a medically-induced coma for several months.

The report claimed Schumacher has been benefiting from infusions of stem cells that are distributed in the body to obtain a systemic anti-inflammatory action.

In his own words, no one loves Supercars more than its record-leading driver Jamie Whincup.

However, despite the furore over his inflammatory comments made at the ITM Auckland SperSprint, Whincup was adamant he “won’t change anything” about how he operates despite facing a possible race ban.

Whincup’s heated comments came after he was penalised for passing the Safety Car in Sunday’s Race 24 when he believed he was being incorrectly held behind it, before slumping to a 16th-place finish.

We never thought we’d see the day — Marc Marquez won a last-lap battle!

After losing four final-lap battles in the first 12 races — two of them went down to the last corner — the seven-time world champion stitched up Fabio Quartararo with two corners to go and crossed the finish line 0.0903 seconds ahead of a very ecstatic rookie.

The Frenchman came so close to winning his first ever MotoGP race, and in the process, moved up to seventh in the standings and took over leading Independent Rider status from Jack Miller.
