Michael Schumacher’s wife breaks down as she admits his health is ‘different now’

Michael Schumacher’s wife has admitted his health is “different now”.

The seven-time world champion (53) has not been seen in public since falling in a skiing accident in the French Alps in December 2013 and banging his head open.

Michael and Corinna’s 27th Wedding anniversary took place on August 1st.

Corinna broke down in tears after giving a rare update on her husband’s health after accepting an award on his behalf, the State Prize of North Rhine-Westphalia, in July.

She said: “I miss Michael every day. But it’s not just me who misses him.

“It’s the kids, the family, his dad, everyone around him. I mean everyone misses Michael but Michael is here.

“Different, but he’s here and that gives us strength, I think.”

Corinna was accompanied by her daughter Gina when she accepted the award.

The prestigious award was given to Schumacher in recognition of his many achievements which left Corinna in tears on stage.

Despite wearing a helmet, Michael suffered a traumatic brain injury and was placed in a medically induced coma, although he has since regained consciousness and remains at home.

In September 2014, he was moved to his home on Lake Geneva, where updates on his condition have been minimal following a request for privacy from his family.

Corinna added: “We’re trying to run a family like Michael loved and still does. And we get 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 and now we protect Michael.”

NRW Prime Minister Henrik Wust emphasized Schumacher’s contribution.

At the award ceremony, he praised the Formula 1 driver for his work on and off the racetrack.

Wust said: “With Michael Schumacher we are honoring a man who is not only distinguished by his sporting achievements.

“But above all, we pay tribute to Michael Schumacher beyond racing and the limelight.

“[He]has a big heart and for whom it was important to think of others.”

Schumacher’s former Ferrari team boss Jean Todt was also present.

The French spoke of his close friend Corinna being visibly touched at the ceremony.

He said: “It’s very natural.

“Nobody planned it so emotionally that Corinna shed tears, but sometimes it’s good not to always control yourself.

“I don’t miss Michael. i can see him But what I miss, of course, is what we used to do together.

FIA President Jean Todt is among the few visitors to visit Schumacher’s home on Lake Geneva.

The Frenchman, who as Ferrari team boss was responsible for five of the German’s seven titles, previously said his former driver is “struggling”.

Todt added: “He has an amazing wife next to him, he has his kids, his nurses and we can only wish him the best and wish the family well too.”

Michael Schumacher’s son Mick is a Formula 1 driver and drives for Haas.

“It’s amazing to race in the same sport as him,” he said.

“It’s a sport that we both love so much, so it’s amazing to be able to follow a similar path and get to know the sport from the inside.

“It’s a dream come true for me, a dream I’ve been chasing since I was three years old and now it’s finally happened, it’s amazing.”

Mick is thrilled to be following in his father’s footsteps and pursuing his childhood dream by driving in Formula 1.

“My mother was actually quite surprised when I told her about it,” Mick said when asked how she reacted to the news that he would be in Formula 1 in 2021.

“She was sure that I would make it.

“I’ve always had her support and the support of my entire family.

“It’s pretty clear that I’ve been in the spotlight from a very young age, and probably a little more than usual, because of the sport I play and love.

“But I’ve gotten used to it. I’m coping well with it, the results speak for themselves and I’ll try to keep the same rhythm as now.”

In the hard-hitting Netflix documentary, he shed some light on how their father-son relationship is now Schumacher last year.

He said: “I think dad and I would get along differently now.

“Simply because we speak a similar language, the language of motorsport.

“And that we had so much more to talk about.

“That’s where my head is most of the time.

“I thought it would be cool that would be.

“I would give up everything for that alone.

“Of course, since the accident, these experiences, these moments that I think many people have with their parents are no longer there, or to a lesser extent.

“That’s a bit unfair from my point of view.” Michael Schumacher’s wife breaks down as she admits his health is ‘different now’
