Michael Schumacher’s wife Corinna talks about the seven-time champion’s health and current condition for the first time since his accident.

Michael Schumacher retired from Mercedes and Formula 1 at the end of 2012, and the very next year he was involved in a tragic skiing accident that left him with traumatic brain damage.

Since then not a lot has been known about his condition. What is known is the fact that he is under the care of his wife Corinna and a team of doctors.

The only person from Formula 1 that is allowed to visit Michael is his friend and former team boss Jean Todt.

Now, for the upcoming Netflix documentary ‘Schumacher’, Michael’s wife Corinna has publicly spoken about his condition for the first time.

“Everybody misses Michael, but Michael is here, different, but here,” Corinna says in the film.

“He still shows me how strong he is every day. We’re together. We live together at home. We do therapy.

“We do everything we can to make Michael better and to make sure he’s comfortable and to simply make him feel our family, our bond.

“And no matter what, I will do everything I can. We all will. We’re trying to carry on as a family, the way Michael liked it and still does. And we are getting on with our lives.

“I miss Michael every day. But it’s not just me who misses him. It’s the children, the family, his father, everyone around him.”

Corinna also talks about the “bad luck” of having such a horrific accident after you retire from a lifetime of taking risks in Formula 1.

“We’d always made it through his races safely. Which is why I was certain he had a few guardian angels that were keeping an eye out for him.

“I don’t know if it’s just a kind of protective wall that you put up yourself or if it’s because you’re in a way naive but it simply never occurred to me that anything could ever happen to Michael.

“I never blamed God for why this happened now. It was just really bad luck, all the bad luck anyone could ever have in their life,” concluded Corinna.
