Michael Schumacher’s wife Corinna and son Mick have given a rare glimpse into the life of the seven-time world champion with his family since he suffered serious head injuries in a ski accident seven years ago. Michael was seriously injured when he fell while skiing in Meribel, France in 2013.
After undergoing surgery for brain injuries, Schumacher was placed in a family home in Switzerland in September 2014. After that, there was no new information, and the Schumacher family was largely silent about his condition at the time.
However, family members talked about the accident and life with him in a new, officially approved biographical film that is due out next week under the title Schumacher. “Of course I miss Michael every day,” Corinna Schumacher says in the film.
"But I don't just miss him: the kids, the family, his father, everyone around him." "Everyone misses Michael, but Michael is here," his wife continues. "It's different, but he's here and it gives me strength."
She also confirmed that she is continuing treatment for injuries. "We are together. We live together at home, we do therapy, ”she adds.
"We do everything we can to make Michael better and more comfortable and to simply feel our family, our relationship.
No matter what, I will do everything I can. We will all do it. ” “We try to continue (live) as a family the way Michael liked it and it still is like that,” she adds. "We move on with our lives. Private is private, he always said.
It is very important to me that he can continue to enjoy his private life as much as possible, Michael has always protected us, now we protect Michael. ” The younger of Schumacher’s two children, their son Mick, made his debut as a Formula 1 driver this year.
He described the sadness he feels for not being able to talk about his career and share other experiences with his father. “After the misfortune, this (family) is experiencing, those moments that I believe many people have their parents are no longer present, or to a lesser extent, and in my opinion, it is a bit unfair,” he says.
“I think Dad and I would understand each other differently now simply because we speak a similar language, the language of motorsport and about which we would have a lot more to talk about." "That’s where my head is most of the time, thinking it would be great. I would give up everything just for that. " Schumacher will be released on Netflix on September 15, 2021.
