Schumacher’s stepbrother on Germanwings

Michael Schumacher’s step-brother was on the passenger list of the ill-fated Germanwings flight, it has emerged.

The Berliner Kurier newspaper reported that 36-year-old Sebastian Stahl, a racing driver in a touring car series, was in Barcelona for a photographic shoot before returning to Germany.

But Stahl told the newspaper: "Yes, I am alive. It is crazy how many friends and people I have said that to in the last few hours.

"I came back 24 hours early on the same Germanwings plane from Barcelona to Cologne.

"I had incredible luck," said Stahl, the son of Rolf Schumacher’s latest wife.

"Because on Sunday it was pouring with rain in Barcelona, we did consider extending for a day, so I probably would have re-booked on the flight (9525). We flew over the very same mountains."
