Michael Schumacher's manager gives hope of recovery

Michael Schumacher’s manager hopes that the seven-time Formula One world champion “will be here again one day”.

In December, 2013, Schumacher, 47, sustained horrific brain injuries in a freak accident, while skiing in the French Alps, and updates on his condition have been infrequent. But Schumacher’s manager, Sabine Kehm, has provided a rare insight into the health of the stricken race-car driver.

Speaking at the opening of an exhibition of Schumacher’s career, in Marburg, Germany, Kehm said: “Of course, Michael is missing on days like today. Of course, it is a great shame that he cannot be here, and no-one should regret it more than him.

“Unfortunately, however, we cannot change what has happened. We have to accept it, and patiently hope, supporting him with everything that we have, that he will be here again one day.”

The positive update will provide hope to Schumacher’s fans that he may recover.

Earlier this month, his former Ferrari boss, Luca di Montezemolo, had said news regarding Schumacher’s condition “isn’t good”.

The German driver was one of the greatest of the sport, winning 91 races between 1991-2006, and claiming five successive titles to become the most decorated driver in Formula One. Schumacher is receiving treatment at his family home in Lausanne, Switzerland.
