German Grand Prix another chance for fans to celebrate the slow recovery of Schmacher.
Corinna Schumacher has reached out to every fan of her husband Michael on the eve of the German Grand Prix thanking them for their unwavering support.
The seven-time world champion was in a medically induced coma for months after he struck he head while skiing with his family in France.
Surgeons operated several times on Schumacher to relieve the pressure inside of his skull and blood clots as a result of the significant impact, which many experts said was lucky not to have killed him outright.
However, despite many doctors suspecting he would never wake up and would remain in a coma for the rest of his natural life, Schumacher’s wake-up phase has allowed him to continue his treatment.
“This is a message to all of you who have lived a passion for Michael’s sport in all the years together with him and who have supported him the past half year off the track as well,” Corrina said.
“The German Grand Prix gives me the perfect opportunity to cordially thank you for the good wishes and positive energies you keep sending Michael.
“I have to say your sympathies blew us all away! Good to know that together we made it through the hardest time!
“Now we are facing a phase which will presumably take a long time.
“We trust that — as for so many years in F1 — time will be Michael’s ally in this fight.
“Until then I would like to wish you and your families all the best as well.”
There has not been an official medical update on Schumacher’s condition since June, when his management team confirmed he was no longer in a coma and had left the Grenoble hospital he had been in since the accident.
