Fans have been desperate for months to know anything about #Michael Schumacher’s health update. However, the camp of the #Formula One legend has always been private about his condition. Now, reports revealed that the family of the seven-time Formula One World Champion is facing more problems than progress.

Michael Schumacher’s family did not hide his 2013 head injury after an unfortunate accident at the French Alps as they believe that the public deserved to know what happened to the #F1 star. But after reports claimed that the 48-year-old German retired racing driver’s health has been declining, his family and friends suddenly asked the media to respect their privacy.

With the lack of update about his condition, many were convinced that the reports might be true. Fortunately, one of his close pals, Ross Brawn, shared something promising regarding the state of Michael Schumacher’s health at the time that made his fans hopeful. However, the technical director at Benetton and Ferrari quickly took his statement back after realizing that the F1 star’s family wanted to keep this topic private.

Formula One legend's current condition revealed?

“I was quoted as saying he's improving, and it was not what I meant,” he explained to Autoweek. “The family is conducting his convalescence in private, and I need to respect that. So I don't want to comment on his condition beyond saying we're extremely hopeful we'll see Michael as we knew him at some point in the future."

Currently, nothing much is said about Michael Schumacher's health, but his name is back in the headlines again for a different reason.

While his family is still hoping for his fast recovery, they are now forced to face another headache.

F1 star's family facing another problem

Reports revealed that German painter Huseyin B. had blackmailed Michael Schumacher, demanding him to pay £700,000 (or $912,520.00 approximately) or else he will harm his son, Mick Schumacher. The publication revealed that the shocking message was sent to the F1 star’s wife, Corinna, last year on Valentine’s Day.

“If the money does not come to us by March 31, 2016, your children will be in some way unlucky. A lot of accidents happen in Formula 4,” the blackmail, that was sent via email, read. Michael Schumacher’s son, Mick, has followed his father’s footsteps and is also a professional racing driver.

Corinna sought help from the police and Huseyin was brought to justice. The blackmailer eventually pleaded guilty of the crime.
