Kehm said, “He (Michael Schumacher) is the most successful driver in history and sometimes on days like this, it is goof to be reminded of it. OF course Michael is not here and of course we miss him. We know what has happened and cannot change it.” Kehm added, “His condition was improving given the gravity of his injuries.”

Luca di Montezemolo, Michael’s former boss at Ferrari recently visited him at his residence in Switzerland and revealed that the news was unfortunately is not good. Last year Ferrrari team principal and current FIA president John Todt had said that, “Michael is still fighting”. Todt had worked very with Schumacher through his career at Ferrari and is considered a close friend to Michael.

Michael Schumacher suffered an accident while skiing at Meribel, in the French Alps back in 2013. Although he was wearing a helmet, Michael sustained severe head injuries and had to be immediately airlifted to hospital. He suffered critical injuries around the head area and had to undergo emergency surgery. He was also placed under medically induced coma to reduce swelling around his brain. In 2014 he was moved back to the family home in Switzerland where he continued to receive care from a dedicated medical team.

There have been several attempts by the media to get close to the actual story of the legend and his health condition however have been unsuccessful. A German tabloid had presented an article quoting a ‘confidant of Schumacher’ saying that the driver was “very thin, but he can once again walk a little with the help of his therapist. He even manages to walk a few steps and raise his arm”. There are several conflicting reports that have been doing the rounds however, the actual picture is still unclear.

The Schumacher family prefers to maintain a level of silence and privacy over the recovery process of Michael. They have refrained from speaking to the media and public in general. Kehm also refused to respond to the comments made by Luca di Montezemolo.
