FIA president Todt gives an update on Schumacher’s condition:
I see Michael very often and Michael is still fighting. Michael is a close friend, his family is very close to me and I am very close to them as well. We must keep him fighting with the family . I was very proud of what Michael did and sometimes you tend to forget what he did.
Schumacher leaves Swiss hospital and is returning to his home, where he’ll continue his recovery from head injuries suffered in a skiing accident last year. His spokeswoman:
Considering the severe injuries he suffered, progress has been made in the past weeks and months. There is still, however, a long and difficult road ahead.
Schumacher’s wife Corinna is selling their grey Falcon 2000EX private jet, capable of carrying eight passengers and flying at 600 miles per hour, with the seven times world champion’s initials on its tailplane. for $20 million. German magazine Bild:
The reasons for the sale are obvious: during his active time as a Formula One driver, Schumi jetted between 300 and 400 hours annually with the aircraft around the world. Even in his break of three years (2007-2009), he used the Jet for many family vacations with Corinna and the children Mick, 15, and Gina Maria, 17.
Schumacher is communicating with his family by fluttering his eye-lashes. The former racing driver is making such good progress he might be allowed home by the end of next month. It is understood that while Schumacher remains paralysed he is able to answer questions from his wife and children Gina-Maria, 17, and son Mick, 15, by fluttering his eyes. His wife:
The German Grand Prix gives me the perfect opportunity to cordially thank you all for the good wishes and positive energies you keep sending to Michael. I have to say your sympathies blew us all away. It is good to know that together we made it through the hardest time. Now we are facing a phase which will presumably take a long time.
Schumacher is in critical condition after suffering severe head trauma in a skiing accident in the French Alps. He falls and hits his head on a rock, said the director of the Meribel resort where Schumacher was skiing. He is presently in a coma at the University Hospital Center of Grenoble and requires immediate brain surgery. Resort director Christophe Gernignon-Lecomte:
We have to wait for a police report. There is an open investigation going on. We insist on the fact that Michael Schumacher was skiing off-piste and his fall is not linked to an avalanche.
