Corinna Schumacher thanks fans for support: ‘Good to know that together we made it through the hardest time!’
Michael Schumacher’s wife says her husband is on the long road to recovery in a public letter
Michael Schumacher’s wife has thanked fans for their support since the F1 driver’s near-fatal skiing accident which left him in a coma.
He has now been moved from Grenoble hospital in France to Lausanne hospital in Switzerland, nearer his family home.
Corinna Schumacher wrote a letter in the programme for this weekend’s Grand Prix in Hockenheim, in which she addressed all those who “have supported him in the past half year off the track”.
“This is a message to all of you who have lived a passion for Michael’s sport in all the years together with him and who have supported him in the past half year off the track as well,” she wrote.
“The German Grand Prix gives me the perfect opportunity to cordially thank you for all your good wishes and positive energies you keep sending Michael. I have to say your sympathy blew us all away! Good to know that together we made it through the hardest time!”
She also confirmed what many medical experts had previously suggested; that his recovery would be a long one.
“Now we are facing a phase which will presumably take a long time,” she continued. “We trust that time will be Michael's ally in this fight. Until then I would like to wish you and your families all the best as well.”
The 45-year-old former F1 champion was skiing in French resort Meribel in December when he suffered serious head injuries.
This is the second time Corinna has spoken about her husband’s condition in the past month, after making her first public appearance at a horseriding event in Switzerland.
“It's getting better, slowly certainly, but in any case it's improving,” Corinna told German magazine Neue Post at the event.
