Michael Schumacher health update: Information still scarce as manager Sabine Kehm asks everyone to respect privacy


Official news regarding the real health condition of pro-racer Michael Schumacher following his skiing accident a couple of years back is still scarce. Unfortunately, it appears like it will continue to be this way with the athlete’s manager Sabine Kehm vehemently saying that she cannot give out anything when reporters caught up with her recently.

“We all know that I cannot comment,” Kehm was quoted by Kolner Express newspaper (via Fox Sports), when she made an appearance at an event launch for a forthcoming charity football match this month. The occasion will be held ahead of the German Grand Prix where the pro-racer will be honored.

“We just have to accept that the family wants to continue to protect their privacy,” she added referring to Schumacher’s decision to keep everything on the down low despite the clamor for information coming from fans and even former colleagues. “Of course, Michael will not disappear but at the moment the private situation is so difficult that unfortunately no insight can be given. There must be understanding for this.”

It can be remembered that Schumacher’s wife, Corinna, as well as other people involved in his rehabilitation, has drawn some flak for not being honest about the seven-time Formula One Champion’s true condition. Nevertheless, people are still keeping their hopes up that someday soon, the fallen racer will be back in tip-top shape.

“I know how strong he is. I’m sure that thanks to his determination which will be crucial he will come out from this very, very difficult situation. And I really hope,” Schumacher’s former boss at Ferrari, Luca di Montezemolo, said back in May, adding that the pro-racer is slowly reacting.

Meanwhile, as the Schumacher patriarch continues to get back his old form, his son Mick is slowly making a name for himself in the racing arena. The 17-year-old Prema Powerteam member is also being managed by Kehm, and fans can expect more things from the young athlete. As previously reported, Mick will be participating in both the German ADAC Formula 4 and the Italian Formula 4 racing series.
