Eddie Jordan was blocked in his request to visit Michael Schumacher due to strict rules regarding current visitations that have been put in place by his family and loved ones.
The founder of Jordan Grand Prix asked to visit the F1 icon who won seven World Drivers' Championship titles between 1994 and 2004, who has been receiving medical treatment and rehabilitation privately since 2014.
The condition of the 53-year-old, who shares children Gina-Marie and Mick with wife Corinna, has been kept mostly private since a 2013 skiing accident – with Jordan hoping to visit in order to share his support.

"So, there was connection and I reached out and one stage asked was it appropriate and did I think we should go and visit him," Jordan told the Irish Daily Mirror.
"The answer was no. No visitations for anyone at that moment except the actual direct family.
"However, since then, young Mick Schumacher – Michael's son – has reached out to me, and he has been extraordinary."

One regular visitor to Schumacher has been former Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 team principal Jean Todt, who worked with the iconic driver for a decade.
He has kept fans updated and even said that pair have watched races together on television, recently saying that the support is gratefully received.
Todt had told BILD : "I'm happy that the fans, not only in Germany, think of him so much.
"People ask so much about Michael. The fans should know that he is in the best of hands.
"In the best situation he can be and surrounded by people who love him."
Adding: "As long as I am in this world, I will always visit him. Sometimes we see each other three times a week, sometimes not for a whole month."
