Michael Schumacher’s wife Corina has recently broken her silence on her husbands’ conditions by saying that he is still battling to recover from the brain injury he had suffered while skiing in Meribel in the French Alps on the 29th December 0f 2013. Updates on the seven-time Formula 1 World Champion’s health had always been kept in secret and infrequent to the public ever since his shocking accident while on holiday with his family.
The former Ferreri driver fell into a coma for six months and has been cared for at home ever since. Former french racing driver Phillipe Streiff spoke out when Schumacher woke up from a coma to say that he is unable to speak and is paralyzed in a wheelchair. Streiff himself sits on a wheelchair due to his crash in 1989 in Brazil.

Since Streiff’s updates, the Schumachers have been very private about Michael’s condition until the newly announced Netflix documentary titled ‘Schumacher’ where Corina along with the family member talk about how life has been in the last eight years due to the incident. “I miss Michael every day. But it’s not just me who misses him,” said Corina in the documentary. “Michael is here, but different” she added.
Michael’s son, Mick Schumacher who was aged 14 was present during the accident in 2013. Today Mick is a Formula 1 driver for Haas and the 2020 Formula 2 World Champion. While talking about his father the 22-year-old has described the understanding in this father-son relationship is different in a way now by saying “Simply because we speak a similar language – the language of motorsport,” as reported by Marca.
More updates on the condition of the German driver is said to be announced in the upcoming Netflix documentary on the 15th of September 2021.
