Schumacher’s total care costs hit $15m as F1 legend ‘improves’

Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher is running up care bill at $154,000 a week, with the total costs hitting $15million following a horror skiing accident that left him in a coma, according to a new report.

Schumi came out of the coma six months later, and since then the full state of his condition has been kept under wraps as he continues his recovery.

The Mirror reported that – It is understood that his care costs have dented his $800million fortune $154,000 each week after a state of the art treatment facility was installed in his Swiss mansion home with an elite team of 15 medics including doctors, nurses and therapists.

His family already been forced to sell off his beloved private jet and holiday home in Norway, worth an estimated $25m, in a bid to cover his escalating costs.

The UK website Christian Today reported that, his wife has taken charge of his business affairs though questioned whether his $800million net worth could buy his recovery.

It added: “The real score on Schumacher’s health is of utmost importance. The money they have could be insufficient if recovery is not progressing.

“As far as Schumacher’s real state is concerned, there are alleged reports that he now only weighs 45 kilograms and is unable to walk on his own.”

According to reports, the sportsman weighs just 45kg and is unable to walk on his own.

His manager Sabine Kahn said: “We are happy to say still he does improve and I say this always considering the severeness of the injury he had.

“But of course it will take a very long time for everybody involved to fight, and we are happy to take this fight.”

Professor Curt Diehm, of the Karlsbad teaching hospital in Germany, said: “While a weight loss in coma patients is normal, 20 kilos is a lot for people with normal body weights.

“One must assume that his muscles have degraded greatly due to the immobility.”
