Updates about Michael Schumacher’s health condition remains private in the past few years. Despite the tragedy, the family of the legendary Formula One keeps their hopes high by continuously supporting each other. They were even seen for the first time in a sports event. Here are the details about Schumacher and his family.

Schumacher family appeared at sports event

According to Daily Mail, Corinna Schumacher has finally appeared on a recent sports event at one of the world’s most famous horse-riding arenas. It is one of the most impressive facilities in the world as it measures 95 x 50 meters and can accommodate more than 1,400 spectators.

Corinna was spotted with her 18-year-old son, Mick Schumacher. The two of them gave their support to the 20-year-old Gina Schumacher who is participating in the sports event.

Even though Corinna has been through years of suffering after the skiing accident of her husband, she still managed to show her smile. She even appeared in high spirits at the event. The seven-time F1 world champion’s wife was also spotted clinging to Mick while they watch the competition.

How did it all happen?

The Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher crashed his head on a rock while he was skiing with Mick at an exclusive ski resort of Meribel in France on December 29, 2013. After the tragic accident, the legendary racing driver was put into a coma even though he was wearing a protective helmet.

For six months, Michael has been in a medically-induced coma. With this, Schumacher needs at least 15 different teams of medics to look after him and help him recover at his house in Geneva, Switzerland.

At the Grenoble Hospital, the F1 star's doctors operated on him to remove blood clots from his brain. However, some clots were too hard to separate because they were deeply embedded.

Furthermore, doctors explained that his condition is extremely severe. The Formula 1 champion even went into two operations just to save his life.

Michael Schumacher's consciousness returned from his coma in 2014. However, he still cannot talk and do the things he used to do. He remained disabled since then.

FIA president Jean Todt has released a statement in December that the Formula One world champion is still fighting for his recovery.

The F1 Motorsports managing director Ross Brawn also added that they would keep praying every day that Michael will recover to a better stage.

Sabine Kehm, Michael’s manager, pointed out that the F1 legend has always been protective of his privacy particularly in the most prosperous times in his career. Kehm further emphasized that there will always be a clear line between Schumacher's private and public matter. Hence, that they would still keep Schumacher's health condition as a private matter. Moreover, his family nor his team will make no further comments about the situation.
