Michael Schumacher’s Manager States the Star’s Situation is Still ‘Difficult’
It’s been over 30 months since seven-times F1 champion Michael Schumacher suffered a horrific ski accident in the French Alps.
His family, which is reported to be spending over $140,000 in medical bills every week, has closely guarded the condition of the 47-year-old, and while his situation was said to be “slowly improving” last year, things are still “difficult” as of today, according to Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm.
“We all know that I can’t comment. We just have to accept that the family wants to continue to protect their privacy,” Kehm said at an event, according to Express.co.uk. “Of course, Michael will not disappear but at the moment the private situation is so difficult that unfortunately no insight can be given. There must be understanding for this.”
It’s hard to fathom what Schumacher’s family has been going through since the accident. He can’t walk or speak and as aforementioned those who know about the former Ferrari driver’s condition have refused to make any detailed comments, although his son Mick is occasionally in the public frame now. The teenager is plying his trades in Formula 4, with aims of entering Formula 3 soon enough.
