Schumacher feared he was dying in crash in 1999

Former Formula One champion Michael Schumacher says he felt on the way to meet his maker after a heavy crash at Silverstone in 1999.
The seven-time F1 champion, who retired at the end of the 2006 season, had crashed his Ferrari during the British Grand Prix.
"I suddenly felt my heart beat slowing and then completely stopping. The lights went out," Schumacher said in an interview broadcast late Tuesday by German television network ZDF in describing the immediate aftermath of the crash, which broke his leg.
"Then I thought, 'Ah, that's the way you feel probably when you are on the way up.' I only know that my heart stopped beating, at least the way I felt."
