"Michael Schumacher is here, different, but here"

The wife of the seven-time Formula 1 champion, the German Michael Schumacher, assured that her husband “It’s here, different, but here”, after the accident he suffered in 2013 that caused serious brain damage.

Corinna Schumacher addressed the issue for the first time in eight years, since the former pilot’s accident occurred in the French Alps, when he hit his head on a rock while skiing and suffered almost irreversible brain damage.

“He did not want to go to the snow but to Dubai. Michael told me that the snow was not ideal, that we could fly to Dubai and go skydiving, “said the 52-year-old German.

In that sense, the wife of the seven-time Formula 1 world champion admitted: “I miss him every day. I never blamed God for what happened. The accident was really bad luck, all the bad luck that anyone could have in their life. But Michael is here, different, but here. It still shows me how strong he is every day. “

Corinna referred to her husband’s health in a documentary about the life of the driver which will be released soon (on September 15 on Netflix) and will provide details about what happened on the French station Meribel in December 2013.

From that moment no photos were known and very little about the evolution and the present of the former runner, who came to remain in an induced coma for six months until June 2014.

“I miss Michael every day, but it’s not just me who misses him. They are the children, the family, his father, everyone around him, “said the businesswoman.

Everything concerning the care and recovery of Schumacher always remained in a strict secrecy, and his wife recalled that he felt he had “some guardian angels” after each Formula 1 race that could culminate, given how dangerous the activity was.

“I do not know if it is just a kind of protective wall that you build yourself or if it is because it is somehow we become naive, but it just never occurred to me that something might happen to Michael, “he explained.

In addition, he added that all the family is in therapy, and they seek to “get ahead”, but he also clarified that all its members they continue “with their life” and they seek to do “everything we can to improve Michael and make sure he is comfortable.”

“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, “he said.

In the documentary about Schumacher there will be interviews with the family of the former driver, his wife, his father Rolf, and his brother Ralf, his children Gina and Mick, who is now in Formula 1, also speak, as well as motorsport figures such as Jean Todt , Bernie Ecclestone, Sebastian Vettel, Mika Häkkinen, Damon Hill, Flavio Briatore, and David Coulthard.
