Corinna Schumacher, wife to seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher has opened up on her husband’s condition for the first time since 2013 when the champ suffered a serious head injury after a skiing accident in the French Alps.
Since then, the seven-time world champion has been out of the public eye and his family has kept the recovery of his progress private with little or no comments.
However, Corinna has shed some light into the progress of the 52-year-old after speaking in an upcoming Netflix documentary called Schumacher which shows the life and career of one of the greatest Formula 1 driver of all time.
“Michael is here. Different, but he’s here,” she said. “That gives us strength, I find. He still shows me how strong he is every day.
“We live together at home, we do therapy. We do everything we can to make Michael better and to make sure he’s comfortable, and to simply make him feel our family, our bond.
“And no matter what, I will do everything I can. We all will. We’re trying to carry on as a family, the way Michael liked it and still does. And we are getting on with our lives.”
Corinna Schumacher says she prefers to keep her husband’s condition and health private as a replication of how Schumacher prefered to keep his family life private and out of the media despite being a superstar in his F1 career.
“‘Private is private’, as he always said. It’s very important to me that he can continue to enjoy his private life as much as possible. Michael always protected us, and now we are protecting Michael.”
“I never blamed God for why this happened now. It was just really bad luck, all the bad luck anyone could ever have in their life.”
