Michael Schumacher health updates: Pro-racer wanted to 'disappear' before skiing accident


A little bit over two years since that unfortunate skiing accident of renowned race car driver Michael Schumacher in the Alps, but there has still been little to no official update given about the pro-racer’s health condition and his recovery.

Schumacher’s family has been pressured by fans who want to know what is truly happening behind the curtains. Unfortunately, aside from a couple of statements given by his friends and colleagues, no one really knows what the racer’s exact conditions are. Earlier this year, Schumacher’s former manager Will Weber, demanded to know the world champion’s state after slamming Corinna, Schumacher’s wife, for not letting him visit his ex-colleague.

“I think Michael’s fans would be happy if they were given an honest message about his condition. It would also help the people with whom Michael worked all these years better cope with the situation,” he said.

Meanwhile, a report by Latin Post last month remembers Schumacher’s eerie statement about “disappearing” before his fatal accident. The conversation was divulged by his current manager, Sabine Kehm where she was quoted in saying, “Once in a long discussion Michael said to me, ‘You don’t need to call me for the next year, I’m disappearing.’ I think it was his secret dream to be able to do that some day. That’s why now I still want to protect his wishes in that I don’t let anything get out,” during a media event in Lake Starnberg back in 2014.

Schumacher’s family is very careful with what they give out to the public regarding the family’s patriarch. As of now, only Kehm is the legitimate source of information about the German racer.

Meanwhile, for those who are fans of Schumacher’s illustrious career and want to reminisce his glory years, one of the iconic cars that the Formula One champion piloted will be out for auction this coming May, AutoWeek reports. The Benetton Ford F1 which Schumacher drove in his “first-ever podium finish in chassis ’06”  will be travelling to Monaco where it will be up for bidding.
