There is still hope Michael Schumacher might one day return to a normal life.

In recent months and years, almost no official information has emerged about the health of the F1 legend, who sustained brain injuries in a 2013 skiing fall.

Now, Bunte magazine in Germany said the Schumacher family still has hope.

“Corinna and the children hope to this day that a medical miracle occurs,” a supposed ‘family friend’ is quoted as saying.

The friend also said that, thanks to Schumacher’s fitness at the time of his fall, the former Ferrari and Mercedes driver is “doing well in the circumstances”.


The Seven-time F1 world champion is reportedly receiving £115,000-a-week treatment following a brain injury sustained in a skiing accident. Schumacher is currently being looked after at his home by Lake Geneva where he receives constant care from a team of 15 physicians and nurses.

Lewis Hamilton has hinted that he could be ready to try to overhaul Schumacher’s record of seven world titles. Hamilton, 32, won his fourth drivers’ championship at the Mexico Grand Prix, making him the most decorated British driver in history.

Hamilton said: “We all know how exceptional Michael was and it is very crazy to think that I’ve matched certain records.

“But there are potentially many more years to go. I’ll continue to race while I love it and while I do think that it would be so nice at some stage just to live in one place – socialising, walking your dogs or surfing – there’s a lot of life to live beyond 40.

“I could do the easy thing like Nico [Rosberg] did which is to just stop and retreat with these four titles but there’s more in me and more to come.”
