Michael Schumacher’s wife shared unpublished details about the pilot’s health

The worn phrase “broke the silence” applies to Corinna Schumacher with all the impact of her long-awaited testimony after almost eight years of hermetic silence since her husband, Michael Schumacher, suffered an accident in December 2013 while skiing in the French Alps. when the seven-time Formula One champion struck his head on a rock, losing his balance and suffering severe brain damage.

The family was absolutely silent. There has not been a single image of the German since then, and there had not been a single word from his most intimate environment, wife and children, about his state of health until today that Corinna decided, definitely, to break the silence and make an impact: “He did not want to go to the snow but to Dubai”, he told him before suffering the accident.

“Michael told me that the snow was not ideal, that we could fly to Dubai and go skydiving,” the 52-year-old German said, admitting: “I miss it every day.”

Corinna regretted what happened almost eight years ago, but after analyzing the facts for a long time, she said: “I never blamed God for what happened. The accident was really bad luck, all the bad luck that anyone could have in their life “, he considered, adding: “But Michael is here, different, but here. It still shows me how strong he is every day. “

The statements of the wife of the seven-time Formula One champion take place in the framework of a documentary on the life of the driver that will be released soon and will provide details about what happened in the French station of Meribel in December 2013.

Michael Schumacher suffered a brain injury that forced him into a medically induced coma for six months until June 2014. Since then, privacy has been protected and details of his health have been closely guarded by his family. “I miss Michael every day, but it’s not just me who misses him. It’s the children, the family, his father, everyone around him,” said the businesswoman.

Schumacher’s expression about the danger of snow in the Alps and the suggestion that they change their usual destination to Dubai was one of the last things he said to his wife before the accident. Since he could be transferred to his home after hospitalization, the former pilot undergoes daily rehabilitation but both the details of the treatment and his health are strictly guarded.

“We had always gotten through their careers safely,” she said, adding, “That’s why I was sure he had some guardian angels watching him. I don’t know if it’s just a kind of protective wall that you build yourself or if it’s because it’s somehow we get naïve, but it just never occurred to me that something could happen to Michael. “

Corinna also revealed that the family is in therapy and that although she agreed to shoot the documentary about her husband’s life, she will continue to keep Michael in a private setting. “We are trying to move on as a family, the way Michael liked and still does. We live together at home. We do therapy. We do everything we can to improve Michael and make sure he feels comfortable. “

Meanwhile, he said: “We move on with our lives: private is private, as he always said. It is very important to me that he can continue to enjoy his private life as much as possible. Michael always protected us, now we protect Michael. ‘

The documentary in question will include interviews with Schumacher’s family including his wife, his father, Rolf, and his brother, Ralf. Also speaking are his sons, Gina and Mick, who is now in Formula One, as well as motorsport figures like Jean Todt, Bernie Ecclestone, Sebastian Vettel, Mika Häkkinen, Damon Hill, Flavio Briatore and David Coulthard.

Never-before-seen footage is anticipated to be released and the release date is September 15.
