Race Car Michael Schumacher in Hospital For Secret Treatment

Hopes fade for Schumacher's recovery amid fears he may remain in a 'persistent vegetative state' forever but his family say he's a 'fighter and will not give up'

  • F1 legend has been in a medically induced coma for nearly four weeks
  • Neurologist: 'Every day the chances decline that situation is improving'
  • Austrian media speculate that seven-time champion has Apallic Syndrome
  • Family says they are 'deeply moved' by support from fans around the world
By Daily Mail UK, 22 January 2014


Fears are growing that Michael Schumacher could remain in a 'persistent vegetative state' for the rest of his life even if he wakes up from his coma.

The Formula One legend has been in intensive care since his skiing accident in France nearly four weeks ago.
He was placed into an artificially induced coma shortly after the crash to help his brain heal, but such measures normally last only a maximum of two weeks.
Jean-Marc Orgogozo, Professor of Neurology at the University of Bordeaux, said: 'Every day, every week in a coma the chances decline that the situation is improving'.
One Austrian website reported Schumacher, 45, may suffer from Apallic Syndrome or persistent vegetative state.




Improvement: Schumacher is in a stable condition after suffering severe head injuries in a skiiing accident



Support act: Schumacher's wife Corinna insists her husband is a 'fighter' who will not give up


But his family insisted he was a 'fighter' as they poured out their heartfelt thanks to fans around the world on his webpage on Tuesday.

'We all know: he is a fighter and will not give up!' said his family, adding: 'We are deeply moved that there is no let up in the good wishes for Michael from around the world.

'That gives us strength. Thank you all of you!'

But the support of his wife Corinne, 44, his two teenaged children, brother and closest friends cannot mask the fact that 23 days in an artificial coma means that he is far from anywhere near recovery.
A persistent vegetative state is one in which patients with severe brain damage are in a state of partial arousal rather than true awareness.




'Deeply moved': Schumacher's Rolf Schumacher and brother Ralf arrive at Grenoble Hospital earlier this month. His family have issued a heartfelt thank you to fans around the world for their support




Strain: Corinna Schumacher and their children have been maintaining a constant bedside vigil since his crash

This means that if doctors do bring him out of his artificially induced coma he would be unable to speak, move or feed himself.
The format.at news website said; 'More than three weeks after the tragic skiing accident of the seven-time Formula 1 World Champion Michael Schumacher, hope dwindle for a full recovery.
'For more than three weeks now Schumacher lies in a medically induced coma at the University Hospital in Grenoble.

He is fed there with probes, washed daily and moved again and again to avoid a bed sores.'


Fans hold vigil outside Schumacher's hospital






Probe: Investigators at the site of Schumacher's crash earlier this month where he smashed his head on a rock while skiing off-piste in Meribel, France


It goes on to speculate that the 'severe damage' he suffered to his brain in a ski accident on December 29 could result in the permanent vegative state suffered by around 10,000 of his German countrymen.
This would mean, if and when he is brought out of the coma by his medical team, 'that his condition would hardly be different from the medically induced coma'.

Apallic Syndrome is always the result of a severe brain injury. The chance of recovery from Apallic Syndrome are far below 50 per cent.'
Schumacher's condition remains stable but there is a firewall of silence from his medical team about the intense battle being waged to try to bring him back to normality.




Get well soon! Cologne and Schalke stars hold out a banner wishing Michael Schumacher good health

As Schumacher enters his fourth week in such a state neurological experts are starting to doubt whether he might ever recover sufficiently to be brought out of his sleep.

Meanwhile, his family have paid tribute to Bundesliga sides Cologne and Schalke on the Formula One legend’s official website.

Players from both sides held up a banner which read ‘Get Well Soon! You can do it, Michael’ prior to their friendly on Saturday in honour of the 45-year-old German, who is a Cologne supporter.

The message from the seven-time champion’s family is the first in over a fortnight and comes just days after it was confirmed that he is in a stable condition at Grenoble Hospital.


Quote:
CHANCES OF RECOVERING FROM APALLIC SYNDROME BELOW 50%

Apallic Syndrome - or persistent vegetative state - occurs when a patient with severe brain damage remains in a state of partial arousal rather than true awareness after waking from a coma.

Patients can breathe on their own and circulate because their brainstem remains intact, but they are largely unresponsive to stimulation.
The chance of recovery from Apallic Syndrome are far below 50 per cent.
There is no treatment, but a person can live for many years with the right medical care.


Brain injury patients are placed into artificial comas to reduce the amount of oxygen that flows into the brain, thus making it work less and giving it time to heal.
Such comas usually last for a maximum of two weeks, although there have been instances of patients being under longer.

Update re: PhOtOs-F1 Michael Schumacher Leaves Hospital >Returns Home

Neurologists warn Michael Schumacher now seems Unlikely to Make a Full Recovery as his agent insists he is 'Still in Wake up Phase'

  • The 45-year-old fell while skiing in France and hit his head
  • Doctors removed blood clots from his brain but had to leave the deep ones
  • Last month doctors began process of withdrawing sedatives to wake him up
  • His agent, Sabine Kehm, said today: 'Michael is still in the wake-up phase'
By Daily Mail UK, 1 March 2014


Neurologists have warned that Michael Schumacher now seems unlikely to make a full recovery after spending nearly two months in a drug-induced coma.
The 45-year-old Schumacher fell while skiing in France and hit the right side of his head on a rock, cracking his helmet.
Doctors operated to remove blood clots from his brain, but some were left because they were too deeply embedded.

Nearly two months after Michael Schumacher suffered serious head injuries in a skiing accident.
Some neurologists say the seven-time Formula One champion seems unlikely to make a full recovery.


The seven-time Formula One champion's condition stabilised after he was placed in the coma.
Late last month, doctors began the process of withdrawing sedatives to try to wake him up.

His agent, Sabine Kehm, said in an email today that 'Michael is still in the wake-up phase' and that 'this phase can be long.'

Schumacher's family has released few details of his condition to protect his privacy.

'It does not bode well,' said Dr. Tipu Aziz, professor of neurosurgery at Oxford University who is not connected to Schumacher's care.
'The fact that he hasn't woken up implies that the injury has been extremely severe and that a full recovery is improbable.'




His agent, Sabine Kehm, said in an email today that 'Michael is still in the wake-up phase' and that 'this phase can be long'


Patients who have had major head injuries are sometimes put in a drug-induced coma to give the brain a chance to heal; a coma reduces the need for blood flow and may help the swelling go down.
Aziz said doctors typically try every few days to bring someone out of a coma.

'If you don't start getting any positive signs, that becomes very worrisome,' he said, adding that Schumacher's doctors are probably doing regular brain scans to look for signs of activity - though such signs may be difficult to detect if he is still being sedated.

Other experts said it was premature to make an accurate prognosis.

'About 90 percent of the recovery is made within nine to 12 months, so this is still early days' .

Anthony Strong, an emeritus chair in neurosurgery at King's College London. 'The longer someone is in a coma, the worse their recovery tends to be.'





Now that several weeks have passed since the accident, doctors may also have a better idea of how the rest of Schumacher's brain is doing.

'MRI scans can show any secondary deterioration in the brain structure,' said Dr. Colin Shieff, a neurosurgeon at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London and a trustee for Headway, a British brain injury charity.

He said other parts of Schumacher's brain that weren't directly affected by the accident might now be starting to show worrying signs that may not have been visible before.

Shieff said that if Schumacher does eventually come out of the coma, he probably would face significant disabilities because of the length of time he has already spent comatose.

While there have been rare instances of people emerging from comas months and years later with the ability to communicate, Shieff was doubtful that would be the case with Schumacher.

He said the cases where comatose people made a surprising recovery had mostly suffered things like poisoning, strokes or failed resuscitation attempts.




Treatment: Schumacher is currently being kept under anaesthetic at the University Hospital (above) in France

The helmet worn by Schumacher at the time of his skiing accident has been returned to his family after French authorities finished their investigation of the item.
Crucially, reports that Don Mackay AP, no suspicious activity was raised by thorough checks into the state of the damaged helmet. Mackay writes:
Authorities in France gave wife Corinna the helmet back after they declared their official investigation into the 45-year-old’s accident on December 29 last year closed.
The prosecutor in the town of Albertville, charged with the probe into Michael’s low-speed collision, ruled no third party involvement.
The helmet, which smashed into three pieces when he plunged head-first onto rocks hidden in snow on the slopes of the French Alpine resort of Meribel, has been returned to his family.
His helmet-mounted camera and the rented skis he was wearing at the time of the accident were also returned.

She stressed, however, that the 45-year-old is not only having moments of being awake, but also being ‘conscious’.
Kehm explained that the latter is, “perhaps in a very limited form, being able to interact with the environment”.
Updates from Thursday, April 10
Jean Alesi, former F1 star and friend of Schumacher and his family, has revealed he spotted encouraging signs upon his last visit to see the German.

Man Arrested on Suspicion of Leaking Michael Schumacher's Medical Files Found Dead in Prison Cell
  • Unnamed man was due to be questioned today, Wednesday 6 August, 2014
  • He denied allegations that he leaked medical documents to French paper
  • Schumacher suffered head injuries in a ski accident in the Alps last year
By AP, 6 August 2014


A man arrested in connection with the theft of Michael Schumacher's medical files has been found hanged in his prison cell.

The suspect, a helicopter rescue worker, was found dead today, Wednesday, 24 hours after he was detained.

Schumacher's medical file, which held details of his surgical procedures following his skiing accident, were stolen and offered to the media for £40,000 in June.



The seven-time Formula One champion suffered major head injuries sustained last December and he was kept in a medically-induced coma for six months.
From there he was transferred from Grenoble Hospital in France to Lausanne, Switzerland.
The man arrested worked for Rega, the helicopter company which dealt with Schumacher's transport from France to the University Hospital of the Canton of Vaud, 20 miles from the German's family home on the shore of Lake Geneva. He denied any wrongdoing.

Michael Schumacher’s Head Injury Caused by GoPro Camera,
-French Journalist Says

14 October 2014



Did a GoPro cause Schumacher’s traumatic head injuries? Source: NewsComAu


F1 LEGEND Michael Schumacher’s traumatic head injuries were caused by GoPro camera mounted to his helmet when he fell in a December skiing accident, according to a new report.

French journalist Jean-Louis Moncet said had been in contact with Schumacher’s son, Mick, who passed on the latest development.

“The problem for Michael was not the hit, but the mounting of the Go-Pro camera that he had on his helmet that injured his brain,” Moncet told a French radio station.

London’s The Telegraph reported earlier this year that the GoPro may have been an issue.

Experts from ENSA, the world-renowned ski and climbing academy in the French ski resort of Chamonix, conducted tests on whether the camera weakened the helmet on impact.

“The helmet completely broke. It was in at least two parts. ENSA analysed the piece of the helmet to check the material, and all was OK,” a source close to the investigation told The Telegraph.
“But why did it explode on impact? Here the camera comes into question. The laboratory has been testing to see if the camera weakened the structure.”

Moncet also quoted Mick Schumacher, 15, of saying the seven-time F1 world champion was waking up “very slowly” from his medically induced coma.

“Although things are going at a slow pace, he has a lot of time, I would say he has his whole life in front of him to get back on track,” Moncet added.
Schumacher, 45, is being treated at his Switzerland home following six months of care in a French hospital.

Michael Schumacher’s Doctor Says F1 Hero Could Recover in Three Years

  • Jean-Francois Payen treated Schumacher immediately after his accident
  • He said the F1 star is no longer in a coma and is slowly getting better
  • Schumacher is still being treated at home by team of 15 specialists
  • It is understood the former champ remains immobile and unable to speak
Daily Mail UK, 23 October 2014




Recovering: Michael Schumacher could recover from his brain injury within three years, says a doctor who treated him just after his ski accident


A French doctor who treated Michael Schumacher after the F1 champ's ski accident has predicted a possible recovery within three years.
Jean-Francois Payen, a doctor at the Grenoble hospital that treated Schumacher after his injury in December 2013, visited the Schumacher family at home in Switzerland.

The 45-year-old is being treated at home after spending six months in a medically-induced coma following the accident in Meribel, France.

Dr Payen, who cared for Schumacher for six months after the crash, said the former race car driver is no longer in a coma and is slowly getting better.
'Life after a head injury is punctuated by stages,' Payen told RTL radio on Thursday. He predicted a convalescence of one to three years.
'We hope, but we have to give him time.'

It comes after Schumacher's 15-year-old son Mick earlier this month passed on news that his father was 'waking up very slowly.'

French F1 commentator Jean-Louis Moncet told Europe 1 radio station: 'I saw his son and he told me that Schumi is waking up very slowly; very slowly.
'Although things are going at a slow pace, he has a lot of time, I would say he has his whole life in front of him to get back on track.'

The seven times world champion returned to his home with his wife and children two months ago after being discharged from a rehabilitation clinic in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Schumacher spent time in the rehab clinic after coming out of his medically-induced coma following the accident, which left him with catastrophic brain injuries.

Updates on his condition have been few and far between. After he was moved home, Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm said there was a 'long and difficult' road ahead.

Michael Schumacher's Benetton F1 Car that he Drove to his First ever Podium Finish in 1992 is set to Fetch £300,000 at Auction

  • Michael Schumacher won seven championships between 1994 and 2004
  • The car that he drove to his first podium finish in 1992 is to be auctioned
  • The Bennetton could fetch £300,000 at Bonhams Auctioneers on Sunday
Daily Mail UK, 30 November 2014


The Benetton Formula One car that launched the career of legendary multiple world champion Michael Schumacher is set to be auctioned off.


A 23-year-old Schumacher raced this very car to his first ever podium finish at the last Mexican Grand Prix in his debut F1 season back in 1992.
And racing fans will have the opportunity to buy a piece of F1 history when the Benetton-Ford B191B goes under the hammer at Bonhams Bond Street sale on Sunday.





Michael Schumacher won an unprecedented seven world championships and 91 races in his career






He spent five seasons driving for Benetton before moving to Ferrari where he enjoyed great success

The multiple world champion won two titles with the Benetton team in 1994 and again the following season






The very car driven by Schumacher is set to fetch up to £300,000 at Sunday's Bonhams auction



The car, that is in full working order and in almost the exact same condition as when it was last driven by Schumacher, will set you back as much as £300,000, experts are predicting.
Schumacher's third-place finish in Mexico kick-started a career of unprecedented success. The German won seven drivers' championships during a ten-year domination of the sport between 1994 and 2004.
He also achieved a staggering 91 race wins, 40 more than any other driver in the history of F1.

The car was shortly retired after Schumacher claimed his first podium finish in 1992






The Benetton was powered by a Ford 3.5-litre V8 engine with a whopping 730 horse power



'Chassis 6 is highly respected as the Benetton that took Schumacher to his first podium position,' said James Knight, Bonhams International Head of Motoring.
'But, that's not where the story ends, for this was also the car that took three-time Formula One World Champion driver, Brazil's Nelson Piquet, through his last Grand Prix on the beautiful Adelaide street and parkland circuit in the 1991 season.'

'The Long Goodbye'
-Heartbroken Friends Speak Out About Michael Schumacher

FRIENDS of Michael Schumacher have voiced concerns about raising hopes over the Formula 1 star's future.

9 December, 2014

Michael Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm announced recently that he was no longer in a coma and was on "the long process of recovery".
Quote:
As time goes on it becomes less and less likely that Michael will emerge to any significant extent
Dr Gary Hartstein
However, speaking anonymously, a long-time friend of the Schumacher family said:

"He didn’t die in the accident and he didn’t die during the two emergency operations that followed it.
"He came out of the coma and he has had periods of awakening where he is able to make the smallest of nods.
"The question remains, however, about how much improvement can be expected in the coming months and years. Will he speak again? Will he walk again? Will he be able to feed and dress himself?
"The doctors don’t know. No one can know.
"The probability is that he will never be the man he was before the accident. That much is starkly clear."

Michael Schumacher now has a team of 15 medical experts treating him at a special clinic built in the grounds of his mansion home, in Switzerland.
The tailored medical facilities also house a room for the driver's father – who has moved from Germany to be close to his son.

After remaining in a coma for 159 days, Michael Schumacher relies on machines and tubes to feed, breathe and pass waste for him.
Care costs are estimated to run at over £100,000 a week in wage bills and medical equipment rental.
Each day Schumacher, 45, is massaged for hours in an effort to stimulate muscle mass and is assessed every hour for improvements.

A former medical delegate for the Formula 1 World Championship Dr Gary Hartstein has slammed the uplifting updates from Schumacher's management.
He said:

"We are told, with what seems to be a bit of a triumphal air, that Michael is no longer in a coma."

But pointing out that the sportsman's coma was artificially-induced, said:

"I cannot help but think this is highly cynical use of language, using the truth to convey an impression that is almost certainly false.
"I cannot help but think that if Michael had emerged at all from the minimally conscious state we would be told that he is having problems expressing himself and will work hard to get better or that he is having to learn to walk, read and write all over again.
"This all leaves a very bad taste in my mouth and huge sadness for Michael’s family.
"As time goes on it becomes less and less likely that Michael will emerge to any significant extent."

Asked about life-expectancy, Dr Hartstein – who believes the decorated driver is still for all intents and purposes – said:

"Life expectancy for a comatose patient who does not improve neurologically is measured in months to a relatively few years."

The world, Dr Hartstein said, is now watching the "long goodbye" of its greatest racing star.

The media-blackout around the racer's recovery – including special tents erected to prevent paparazzi shots of the star outside in his wheelchair – means the majority of the Schumacher's legions of fans still believe he is, albeit slowly, on the road to recovery.

Paying tribute to his dear friend, Lewis Hamilton wrote to him:

"Dear Michael, You are always in my prayers. Prayers of hope that you pull through this difficult time."

Jenson Button said:

"When I think of Michael Schumacher I think of two things.
"The first is one of my earliest memories of being in Formula 1 driving out of the pit lane in Melbourne and seeing Michael’s red Ferrari ahead of me scattering the leaves as he drove beneath the trees at the approach to turn three.
"The second thing I think about is that familiar red car snaking about in my mirrors. Michael was such a formidable racer... relentlessly competitive. Always there for him."

Wife Corinna would be thrilled even to see her husband in a wheelchair, by next summer, friends have claimed.

Speaking anonymously to The Daily Mail, they said:

"Even to see him sitting upright would make things seem so much better. Until then she will be simply thankful that at least he is at home, surrounded by the family who love him and pray daily for his recovery."

Update re: PhOtOs-Schumacher Progress Painfully Slow >Care Costs Spiral



Shizuo Kambayashi/Associated Press, 1 Jan 2015


Twelve months on from his skiing accident in the French Alps, Michael Schumacher'a manager says the seven-time Formula One champion faces a "long fight" on his road to recovery.
Monday (Dec. 29) marks the one-year anniversary of Schumacher's accident in Meribel. The head injury suffered that day saw the 45-year-old put into an induced coma, which he has since come out. He is now reportedly battling to recover bodily functions, per Reuters




Shuji Kajiyama/Associated Press


There had been hopes that Schumacher was making some progress, but Sabine Kehm is quoted in the report stating that a long journey lies ahead:

"We need a long time. It’s going to be a long time and a hard fight. He is making progress appropriate to the severity of the situation."




LUCA BRUNO/Associated Press


Kehm felt the need to address the public on Schumacher's condition after claims from Philippe Streiff, a former Formula One driver who became a quadriplegic after suffering an accident of his own in 1989.
Speaking to French newspaper Le Parisien, Streiff is alleged to have spoken with Schumacher's wife, Corinna, and surgeon Gerard Saillant, noting the German "had yet to recover the power of speech" but was "nevertheless starting to recognise those close to him."


The Frenchman went on to say that Schumacher's movement was limited but speculated that "long term...he could hope one day to walk with crutches."




Claude Paris/Associated Press/Associated Press


Streiff

Kehm insists Streiff has had no contact with Schumacher's entourage, however, dubbing it "factually wrong" that the 59-year-old had spoken with those he claims to have, adding:

"I cannot confirm that [report]. I can only confirm that I do not know where Mr Streiff has his information from because he has no contact with us and he never has."

Dr. Saillant would appear to confirm Kehm's dismissal, according to Agence France-Presse saying that, in the past 12 months, he hasn't had contact of any sort with Streiff:

"For a year, I have never had any contact, verbal, written or physical with Phillipe Streiff."

Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski posted a tribute to Schumacher via his official Twitter account, encouraging his compatriot to continue the "long fight"


During his racing career, Schumacher displayed grit, determination and a great deal of fight, all the hallmarks required to reach the pinnacle of a sport in the manner he did.
A year after the his accident, the sporting world continues to hope Schumacher's recovery progresses, but patience is required, as stated by Kehm.

Update re: PhOtOs-Schumacher Progress Painfully Slow >Care Costs Spiral

Michael Schumacher 'Cries When he Hears his Children's Voices'...

His 46th Birthday was on Saturday...


Formula One icon cannot speak but can communicate with his eyes, report claims



Fans of Michael Schumacher gathered outside the hospital in Greenoble to mark his 45th birthday last year


By Telegraph Sport


Michael Schumacher cries when he hears his wife and children's voices, and communicates using his eyes, it has been claimed.

The seven-time Formula One champion will turn 46 on Saturday, 13 months after the skiing accident which left him in a coma for six months.

He will spend his birthday with his wife, son and daughter at their home by Lake Geneva. He has been there since leaving hospital in September, and his wife Corinna has said he is now in a process of recovery "which will presumably take a long time".

New details of the progress of that recovery have been reported in the Italian media.

Newspaper Corriere della Serra said Schumacher is capable of demonstrating emotion through tears.

It said: "Sometimes a tear rolls down Michael's face. He cries when he hears the voice of his children or his wife.
"Michael has his eyes open but he is often looking into a void. In recent times he has been able to recognise the familiar faces of his family but he cannot communicate with them.
"He does not speak and he is not able to perform movements independently. He reacts to external stimuli but for now can only answer a familiar voice by opening his eyes."

A separate report in the magazine Autosprint said Schumacher was able to sit up.
Editor-in-chief Alberto Sabbatini, who said his information was provided by "those who know and see him", said:

"The good news is that Michael is not stuck in a bed. When not undergoing physical therapy to avoid muscle atrophy, he sits in a chair in front of the windows of his villa, overlooking on one side the snowy peaks of the Swiss Alps, and on the other the shores of Lake Geneva."

Schumacher suffered severe head injuries after striking a rock whilst skiing off piste with his son Mick at the French resort of Meribel.
He had two brain operations at a hospital in Greenoble before being moved to hospital in Lausanne last June.

In September, his manager Sabine Kehm said:

“Considering the severe head injuries he suffered, progress has been made in the past weeks and months. There is still, however, a long and difficult road ahead.”

A surgeon who has treated Schumacher said in October the German would need years to recover fully.

Update re: PhOtOs-Schumacher Progress Painfully Slow >Care Costs Spiral

EXCLUSIVE: Michael Schumacher's 'Progress is Uncertain' as Care Costs Spiral

STRICKEN F1 legend Michael Schumacher's care costs have soared to over £10million since his ski accident in the French Alps nearly 14 months ago, according to medical insiders.


Daily Express UK, 18 Feb 2015




GETTY

Schumacher remains mute with "limited awareness" of his environment But for his anxious family and friends, there is still no guarantee that the 46-year-old superstar of motor racing will ever make it back to normal.


His family have imposed a total news blackout on the care he is receiving at his Swiss mansion home on the shores of Lake Geneva.
Yet it is known that he remains mute with "limited awareness" of his environment and is also still unable to walk.

"Progress is painfully slow," said an insider.
"There is no miracle on the horizon."

He is cared for around the clock by a 15-strong medical team advised by Professor Jean-Francois Payen who operated on his brain blood clots after his catastrophic ski accident at Meribel on December 29 2013.

Professor Payen remains in constant contact with the family and medical team wherever he is in the world.
One of his main tasks is managing the expectations of wife Corinna and Schumacher children Mick, 15, and Gina-Maria, 17.

"What tortures the public is the same thing that tortures the family – progress is slow, progress is uncertain," said Peter Hamlyn, a consultant neurological and spinal surgeon and expert in the field of head injuries in sport.




GETTY

Each day, Schumacher is massaged for hours in an effort to stimulate muscle mass Hamlyn successfully treated brain-damaged boxer Michael Watson after being knocked down by fellow Briton Chris Eubank in a world title fight in 1991.



"If you look at severe head injury victims who go on to make a good recovery – and I'm not saying all do – it will always be a story of years," he added.
"The first months are dominated by questions of survival. Gradually as the weeks and months go by those questions of survival turn into questions of the quality of survival.
"It's a rollercoaster and if Michael Schumacher's rollercoaster takes him and his family somewhere happy then they will have been to places that will have been pretty unhappy on the way there.
"But I know they will have been buoyed by all the support that has been voiced."

Professor Payen recently expressed particular admiration for Corinna saying: "She has displayed in every way an exceptional willpower. She knew the seriousness of the situation and the long road that lay before them. She looks at things very clearly and makes every effort, and gives everything, which can help to improve the condition of her husband."

Formula One legend Schumacher suffered severe head injuries while skiing off-piste with his son in the French Alps.
The accident – which would have killed him without a helmet – left the seven-time World Champion with brain damage and he was put in a medically-induced coma for almost six months.

Schumacher has now awoken from the coma, but a complete media-blackout around the racer's recovery means details on his condition are sparse.

His team of medical experts are treating Schumacher in a special clinic, built in the grounds of his Swiss home.

Special tents have been erected to prevent paparazzi photographing the star outside in his wheelchair.

The tailored medical facilities also has a room for the driver's father – who has moved from Germany to be close to his son.

Each day, Schumacher is massaged for hours in an effort to stimulate muscle mass and is assessed every hour for improvements.

Paying tribute to his dear friend, Lewis Hamilton wrote to him: "Dear Michael, You are always in my prayers. Prayers of hope that you pull through this difficult time."

Jenson Button said: "When I think of Michael Schumacher I think of two things.
"The first is one of my earliest memories of being in Formula 1 driving out of the pit lane in Melbourne and seeing Michael’s red Ferrari ahead of me scattering the leaves as he drove beneath the trees at the approach to turn three.
"The second thing I think about is that familiar red car snaking about in my mirrors. Michael was such a formidable racer... relentlessly competitive. Always there for him."

Schumacher's Son to Make Debut


Bleachers, 3 March 2015


Michael Schumacher's Son, Mick, Joins Formula 4 Team Van Amersfoort Racing






Mick Schumacher, the son of legendary Formula One driver Michael, has agreed on a deal to drive for Van Amersfoort Racing in the upcoming Formula Four series.



As BBC Sport noted, the 15-year-old finished second in the German Kart Championship last season and has subsequently been selected to take part in the upcoming campaign, home to the sport's most promising young drivers. He'll get his F4 career underway beginning on April 25




IMRE FOELDI/Associated Press


Mick will be hoping to follow in his father's footsteps.

Frits van Amersfoort, owner of the Dutch racing team, explained why they selected the youngster for the upcoming campaign, per PaddockScout.com (of NBC Sports):
In the last couple of years, it has become a tradition for us that we offer the runner-up from the German junior karting championship (DJKM) a test session in our simulator.
This is handled by the DMSB, the German motorsport authority, and that is how we first got in touch with Mick Schumacher last autumn. He spent a full day in the simulator at our headquarters in The Netherlands. Then we witnessed him during a test session at Valencia and eventually, we reached an agreement to compete together in this year's ADAC Formula 4 series.


Mick's father, Michael, was the most successful driver in the history of the sport, winning seven world titles in a distinguished career.
At the moment, the elder Schumacher is continuing his recovery from a skiing accident that occurred in December 2013. No official updates on his condition have been released since September of last year.




Paul Gilham/Getty Images


Formula 1 has unified to support Schumacher since his accident.

While it would be easy to fast-track the 15-year-old because of the gravitas his name commands, he clearly has the talent to make an impression at this level, as his successes to date suggest.

There will naturally be enormous expectations on him to follow in his father's footsteps, but making the step up from karts to cars represents a crucial time in the development of any young driver. Nonetheless, his involvement will likely ensure F4 and the burgeoning talent in the division will get a lot more coverage than it otherwise would.

Michael Schumacher's Former Ferrari Boss Says He Has 'Received News' About The F1 Legend's Condition
>>But Warns 'Unfortunately it is Not Good'


  • Schumacher's ex Ferrari boss has warned news on the driver is 'not good'
  • Luca di Montezemolo today refused to elaborate on his brief statement
  • He told reporters today: 'I have news and unfortunately it is not good'
  • Schumacher is receiving treatment for head injuries caused in ski accident
Daily Mail UK, 5 February 2016


The latest news about the health of seven-time Formula One World Champion Michael Schumacher is not good, his former Ferrari boss has said.

Luca di Montezemolo, the former Ferrari chairman, today spoke only briefly to reporters and refused to elaborate on the short statement.

Schumacher is still receiving treatment at his home in Switzerland following head injuries he suffered in a skiing accident in France in December 2013.

Schumacher's wife Corrina (pictured together) now manages the racing legend's affairs as he remains at their home in Switzerland undergoing rehabilitation


'I have news and unfortunately it is not good,' Montezemolo told reporters without giving any further details. 'Life is strange. He was a fantastic driver and only had one accident with Ferrari in 1999.'

'He was a great driver and we shared a great personal and professional relationship, we also had the pleasure of having our children at similar times.
'Unfortunately a fall while skiing, an accident, has broken him'.

Schumacher was holidaying with his wife Corinna and children Mick and Gina Maria on December 29, 2013, when he smashed his head on rocks during a low-speed ski-run at the resort of Meribel where he owned a villa.

After being airlifted off the mountain, underwent emergency operations to save his life, placed in an artificial coma and spent months in hospital.

Since September 2014, he has received extended therapy and care in a purpose built medical suite at his Lake Geneva mansion where a team of 15 people look after him around the clock.

As late as December last year it was believed that relatively little had changed in his condition in the time that he had been back home.
During the time since the accident, he has shed over two stone in weight.

His wife Corinna now manages his affairs and has sold off his beloved private jet and a holiday home they shared in Norway.

His management continues to speak of 'encouraging small steps' in his recovery. But the injuries he sustained were so massive that it was unclear when or if he will regain any more motor functions.

The BBC's Richard Conway tweeted Schumacher's spokesperson had declined to comment on Montezemolo's claims.

In November 2014, his friend and former racing driver Philippe Streiff said the seven-time champion could not speak and had memory problems.










Since September 2014, Schumacher has received extended therapy and care in a purpose built medical suite at his Lake Geneva mansion


Streiff, who is himself wheelchair-bound since a crash in Brazil during pre-season tests in 1989 left him a quadriplegic, was speaking on French radio.

The Frenchman said: 'He is getting better but everything is relative. It's very difficult. He can't speak. Like me, he is in a wheelchair paralysed. He has memory problems and speech problems.'

Streiff, 59, was seen visiting Schumacher when the German was in intensive care in Grenoble Hospital, France.

In October, a French doctor treating Schumacher said that the 45-year-old was making progress, but will need years to fully recover.

Ms Kehm has said it was 'very hard' for his loved ones to comprehend how the racing car driver could have been so catastrophically injured in such a 'banal situation'.

Schumacher's wife Corinna was a constant presence at his bedside. She and Schumacher met in 1991 on the F1 circuit after she was previously married to racing driver Heinz-Harald Frentzen.

With an accumulated wealth estimated to be well over half-a-billion pounds, Schumacher's family is well placed to provide the limitless care that will be needed in the coming years

This will include physiotherapists, to massage his atrophying joints, doctors, nutritionists, nurses and neurological experts.

Update re: PhOtOs/VIDEOs-Schumacher UPDATE>Shows 'Encouraging Signs' on Road Back to Recovery

Michael Schumacher Showing 'Encouraging Signs' on Long Road Back to Recovery...
>Reveals Ross Brawn


  • Michael Schumacher suffered a serious skiing accident back in 2013
  • The F1 legend has struggled to make a full recovery since the incident
  • Scumacher's condition has remained unknown in recent years
  • Ross Brawn has said Schumacher has displayed 'encouraging signs'
  • Brawn was Schumacher's boss in his successful spell with Ferrari
Daily Mail UK, 7 November 2016



Michael Schumacher has shown some 'encouraging signs' in his recovery from the serious head injuries suffered in a skiing accident in 2013, former Ferrari technical supremo Ross Brawn said on Thursday.

The seven-time world champion has been treated at home in Switzerland since he was released from hospital and few details have been made public. The 47-year-old's current condition remains unknown.

'The family have chosen to conduct Michael's convalescence in private and I must respect that,' Brawn, who helped German Schumacher to all his titles and worked with him at Benetton, Ferrari and Mercedes, told the BBC.





Michael Schumacher is showing 'encouraging signs' in his recovery, Ross Brawn has revealed





Schumacher, who worked under Brawn, suffered a serious skiing accident back in 2013


'There are encouraging signs and we are all praying every day that we see more of them,' added Brawn, who was close to Schumacher. 'So it is difficult for me to say very much and respect the family's privacy.

'All I would say is there is a lot of speculation about Michael's condition.
'Most of it is wrong and we just pray and hope every day that we continue to see some progress and that one day we can see Michael out and about and recovered from his terrible injuries.'





Brawn, who knows Schumacher well, has said he respects the wishes of the German's family



In September a German court was told that Schumacher, who fell and hit his head on a rock in the ski accident in the French Alps, remained unable to walk.


His manager Sabine Kehm said in December 2015 that media speculation about his condition was 'irresponsible, because given the seriousness of his injuries, his privacy is very important for Michael.
'Unfortunately they (reports) also give false hopes to many involved people.'

Race Car Re: PhOtOs/VIDEOs-Schumachers Son Drives 1994 Benetton Commemorating His Father's 1st

Michael Schumacher Honoured at Spa as Son Mick Drives a 1994 Benetton Commemorating His Father's First Win
  • The car was same spec raced by Schumacher Snr to his first F1 win at Spa in 1994
  • Schumacher Jnr is a racer himself in F3 series, and returned the name to F1 here
  • He wore a 50/50 helmet design for the two laps, half his and half his father's
Daily Mail UK, 27 Aug 2017.



Michael Schumacher may have seen his record for the highest number of pole positions in F1 equalled, but he remains an icon of the sport.
Schumacher's first win in F1 - of a clear record of 91 first places - came in 1994 at the Belgian Grand Prix in Spa, where the sport's circus has pitched up this weekend.


To mark the occasion, Schumacher's son, Mick, raced the same spec car as his father used back in 1994 on two laps of the Spa circuit.

Mick certainly takes after his dad, and is currently 11th in the Formula 3 European Championship.
To do the lap honouring his father, Schumacher junior wore a 50/50 helmet design, half his and half his father's.


The event itself was slightly delayed due to a serious crash in an earlier race on the Spa circuit, however Schumacher eventually made it out and put on a fine display in the spirit of his father.

Schumacher senior was honoured on an emotional weekend at Spa which saw Lewis Hamilton record his 68th pole in F1 - levelling the Benetton and Ferrari legend's record.

Hamilton, after equaling Schumacher's mark on a track where he won six times, said: 'It is definitely a special day. I knew it was on the horizon and at some stage I would get the 68th pole. I did not apply pressure, but now it is an unusual place to be.

'I remember coming to Spa in 1996 for my first grand prix, and watching Michael come out of turn one, and the vibration of the engine shook my rib cage. It was incredible. That is when my love for the sport took another step. Now, to think I have equalled him on poles is very surreal and very much a humbling experience.'

It was while skiing with 18-year-old Mick on a family holiday that Michael sustained severe head injuries in France on December 29, 2013. He has been cared for at his home in Switzerland since September 2014.

The current condition of the 48-year-old Schumacher's health remains closely guarded among family and close associates.

Race Car re: Michael Schumacher in Hospital For Secret Treatment

‘It Felt Like Home’: Mick Schumacher Second in Testing on Maiden F1 Drive. Michael’s Son, Driving for Ferrari, Runs Verstappen Close

It was the first of two days of F1 tests for Schumacher – he drives for Alfa Romeo on Wednesday

The Guardian UK, 3 APR 2019.

Michael Schumacher’s son, Mick, made a hugely successful debut driving a Formula One car in a test for Ferrari. The 20-year-old completed 56 laps in Bahrain and was the second fastest behind Red Bull’s Max Verstappen. Fernando Alonso also returned to F1, conducting a tyre test for Pirelli in a McLaren at the Sakhir circuit.

Schumacher, who won the F3 championship last season, is a member of the Ferrari driver academy and is racing in F2 this season for the Prema team. He finished eighth and sixth in the opening two races in Bahrain last weekend. Ferrari was the team with which his father won five consecutive world championships between 2000 and 2004.

The youngster took to the Ferrari SF90 for his maiden F1 drive on Tuesday morning on a day when running was interrupted by rain. By the close he was swapping fastest laps with Verstappen, who is 21 but in his fifth season in the sport. The Dutchman’s best time was 1min 29.379sec, with Schumacher’s 0.6sec back. The pair were the only two to register times under 1min 30sec.


Thirteen years after his father last drove for Ferrari, Schumacher said he quickly felt at home with the team and relished his first F1 drive. “I really enjoyed today,” he said. “It felt like home in the garage from the very first moment with a lot of people that have known me since I was very young. The SF90 is incredible because of the power it has but it is also smooth to drive and that’s why I enjoyed myself so much.

“I was impressed by the braking power an F1 car has. It seemed to me you could brake later and later and the car would have made the turn anyway. I would like to say thank you Ferrari for this incredible opportunity.”

Mick Schumacher is a member of Ferrari’s driver academy and won the F3 championship last season.

Michael Schumacher was severely injured in a skiing accident in 2013 from which he is still in recovery. He won seven world championships but enjoyed his greatest success with Ferrari, for whom he drove between 1996 and 2006.


Schumacher Jr first took to the wheel in karting in 2008. He drove his father’s 1994 title-winning Benetton at Spa in a demonstration last year but Tuesday was his first time in a contemporary F1 car. He will conduct a further test on Wednesday, for Ferrari’s partner team, Alfa Romeo.

Lewis Hamilton, who won the Bahrain Grand Prix on Sunday, completed the most laps, 71, and was sixth fastest. Lando Norris, a superb sixth in the race, was third fastest for McLaren. Another Briton, George Russell, was last on the timesheets for Williams but will test for Mercedes on Wednesday.

Alonso retired from F1 in 2018 but remained as an ambassador and adviser to McLaren and was conducting the Pirelli tyre test in this capacity. He has been clear he wants to help the team develop the car and has not ruled out a return to F1.

It was the first time Alonso had driven an F1 car since last year’s final race at Abu Dhabi. He completed 64 laps, was 11th fastest and he was impressed with this year’s model.

“It’s a step forward in every aspect,” he said. “I think the car has more grip, is less draggy on the straights, and the engine is a bigger step better as well.”

On Wednesday Dan Ticktum, a 19-year-old Londoner, will make his F1 debut when he tests for Red Bull. Ticktum, a member of the Red Bull junior team, was second to Mick Schumacher in the F3 championship last year and will race in Japan’s Super Formula series this season.

Update Re: Michael Schumacher in Hospital For Secret Treatment

Michael Schumacher 'Admitted to Paris Hospital to Undergo Secret Treatment'

The former Formula One champion has not been seen in public since a skiing accident in the French Alps almost six years ago

Daily Mirror UK, 10 Sep 2019.


Michael Schumacher was secretly admitted to a Paris hospital on Monday for treatment with a pioneering French surgeon.


The seven-time Formula One world champion has not been seen in public since a skiing accident in the French Alps almost six years ago.

Schumacher, who turned 50 in January, was left with severe head injuries and had to be placed in a medically-induced coma for a number of months.

Doctors declared that he was fortunate to be alive.

He is understood to have been receiving medical care at the family home near Lake Geneva in Switzerland, but updates regarding his health have been few and far between.

According to Le Parisien, Schumacher was taken to the Pompidou hospital in southwest Paris on Monday afternoon.

Schumacher originally arrived in a blue and yellow ambulance registered in Geneva at approximately 3:40pm.

It's claimed the former Ferrari driver was set to undergo treatment based on stem-cell transfusion by French surgeon Philippe Menasche, having arrived at the Continuous Monitoring Unit of the Cardiovascular Surgery Department.

The 69-year-old medic is best known for performing the world’s first embryonic cell transplant on a patient with heart failure in 2014 and specialises in stem cell research.

Schumacher's treatment was postponed because of an ‘unexpected health problem’ over the summer.

Schumacher remains Formula One's most successful driver having accumulated a record 91 Grand Prix wins and winning seven world titles.

Earlier this year, on the eve of his 50th birthday, his wife, Corinna, released a rare statement as the official Michael Schumacher app was launched, to remember his successes on the track.

Her update on his condition remained vague, but it has previously been reported a 15-strong medical team looks after Schumacher at the special medical facility built in his home, with his health care bills thought to have exceeded £20million.
