Happy Birthday, Michael Schumacher

Happy Birthday, Michael Schumacher, turns 47 years old today

The Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher turns 47 years old today, and we find again just why there will never be another Schumi.

January 3, 1969: Michael Schumacher, German driver, seven-time F1 world champion, winner of 91 Grand’s prix.

TWO YEARS ON, SCHUMACHER’S HEALTH UNCERTAIN

Two years have passed since Michael Schumacher was left fighting for his life after a dreadful ski accident in the French Alps.

Michael Schumacher’s media lawyer has defended the right of the great German’s family to fiercely defend his privacy.

Tuesday is the two-year anniversary of the F1 legend’s tragic skiing fall in the French Alps, in which he was left with apparently severe brain damage.

To date, however, the public is completely in the dark as to Schumacher’s precise health condition.

Felix Damm, Schumacher’s media lawyer, told DPA news agency that the family has every right to defend its privacy, especially as the former Ferrari driver “always drew a clear line” between his public and private life even before the accident.

“The accident itself was an event of contemporary history and could be reported on,” he said.

“But there is no such requirement once the recovery starts and the public is excluded — it happened in a hospital and now at home.”

Damm also said in a documentary by the Munich broadcaster Bayerischer Rundfunk: “I can understand that there are people who have a serious interest in knowing how he’s doing.

“On the other side you have to understand and see that he does not race anymore and has the right to his privacy,” he added.

For some time, the Schumacher family issued statements to update the public about the 46-year-old’s condition and recovery.

But Damm defended today’s total radio silence.

“You won’t be able to say ‘I will make a statement and clear up all open questions’. Instead, every statement would lead to new questions,” he argued.

ONE LAST RACE TO WIN SCHUMACHER

You can do it SCHUMI. We pray for you, Get Well Soon…!
