The wife of Michael Schumacher is confident time will prove to be a great healer as her seven-times Formula One world champion husband continues his fight for health.
After sustaining severe head injuries in a skiing accident that left Schumacher in a coma for six months, the 45-year-old is now undergoing what has previously been described as “a long period of rehabilitation”.
Being transferred from a hospital in Grenoble, where he had been cared for since the end of December, to the University Hospital in Lausanne closer to his home, allowed wife Corinna to finally make her first public appearance last week.
With renewed hope, Corinna has now issued a message to the F1 fans ahead of this weekend’s German Grand Prix at Hockenheim.
Writing in the programme for the event, Corinna said: “This is a message to all of you who have lived a passion for Michael’s sport in all the years together with him and who have supported him the past half year off the track as well.
“The German Grand Prix gives me the perfect opportunity to cordially thank you for the good wishes and positive energies you keep sending Michael.
“I have to say your sympathies blew us all away! Good to know that together we made it through the hardest time!
“Now we are facing a phase which will presumably take a long time.
“We trust that – as for so many years in F1 – time will be Michael’s ally in this fight.
“Until then I would like to wish you and your families all the best as well.”
