Since Michael Schumacher suffered a horrible injury while skiing in 2013, little has been known or heard about his medical condition. Corinna Schumacher, the wife of the legendary driver, finally broke down the silence and revealed the challenges the Schumachers are facing.
Schumacher was enjoying holiday time with his family in the French resort of Meribel. While skiing, Schumacher almost fatally injured his head. Following the accident, Schumacher spent months in a coma before eventually waking up.
Unfortunately, the seven-time Formula 1 champion hasn't made a public appearance since the accident. Rightfully, the Schumacher family remained very private and secretive.
However, Corinna Schumacher finally talked in greater detail about her husband.
"Of course, I miss Michael every day. But it's not just me who misses him. The children, the family, his father, everyone around him. I mean, everybody misses Michael. 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."
"Michael is here. Different, but he's here, and that gives us strength, I find. 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
'Schumacher' documentary will be released on Netflix on Sep. 15th
Schumacher's son, Mick, developed his racing career during the time. The 22-year-old recently joined Formula 1 for his maiden season in the sport and shows a promising talent for the future. Importantly, Mick says he wishes that Michael could be more present.
"Since the accident, of course, these experiences, these moments that I believe many people have with their parents, are no longer present, or to a lesser extent. And in my view, that is a little unfair."Mick Schumacher
