Tomorrow marks a decade since Michael Schumacher's skiing accident. Information regarding his recovery has been limited. However, the German newspaper BILD recently shared surprising information. They reported that Schumacher was transported in a Mercedes road car, with sounds from F1 tracks played to stimulate his brain with familiar noises. He continues to receive round-the-clock care from a team of 15 doctors. His accident shocked F1 fans who to this day are interested in Schumacher's health and hope for the best. His brother, Ralf Schumacher, spoke in a recent interview about his brother, whom he misses very much. He emphasized that life is not fair, but life must go on.


“I miss the Michael of the old days. Life is unfair from time to time. Michael was very lucky throughout his life. But then there was this tragic accident. Fortunately, advanced medical science provides many opportunities. However, nothing is like it used to be.

It has been a significant experience for me but, of course, even more so for his children.”- Schumacher said, as quoted by crash.net!

Ralf Schumacher: Life is unfair

Ralf emphasized how important Michael was in his life. Even as a boy, he had the opportunity to learn from Michael and become a great driver. Ralf stressed that he had the honor to learn from the best driver.

“Life is unfair at times. That day held a lot of bad luck. This fate has changed our family. Michael wasn't only my brother.

When we were kids, he was also my coach and mentor. He taught me literally everything about kart racing. There may be an age gap of seven years, but he was always by my side.

We raced together, we practised overtaking manoeuvres and everything that matters in motorsports. He passed on all the different things he had already internalised. I had the honour to learn from the best.”
