Michael Schumacher Health Update 2019: F1 Legend Traveled to Spain During His Birthday, German Outlet Claims

Michael Schumacher has reportedly left his Switzerland estate and traveled to Mallorca Spain where he celebrated his 50th birthday. According to Business Times, the German icon reportedly flew to Port d'Andratx in a Bell 429 Global Ranger that’s been designed specifically for the former racer’s needs.

If true, then Michael Schumacher’s recovery may have seen significant progress. It can be recalled that the F1 legend took a nasty accident in 2013 where he suffered a severe brain injury during a skiing trip that took most of his motor and cognitive functions.

Following the mishap, little is known about Michael Schumacher’s health apart from the rare statements given by his family. Now, it seems that his weekly treatment that allegedly costs around $140,000 has paid off.

The whole story originated from German publication Bunte and Bild (via GP Fans) where the outlet claimed that Michael Schumacher traveled to Spain with his family last year. The vacation supposedly started during the holiday season and was extended towards Jan. 3, the German legend’s birthday.

While this might lift the spirits of Michael Schumacher’s fans, it’s best to remain skeptical about the matter given that the family hasn’t confirmed anything yet. This news comes in the heels of another rumor claiming that Corinna Schumacher bought a $30 million property in Mallorca, Spain.

After publications picked up the story, Michael Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm came forward and said that the information is highly inaccurate. Kehm added that the family doesn’t have any plans to move to Mallorca in the foreseeable future.

As for what the motorsports world knows about Michael Schumacher’s health, it’s difficult to speculate given that the family opted to keep his convalescence private. The latest statement about this subject came from Corinna last month after an outpouring of support burst from social media during her husband’s birthday.

“You can be sure that he is in the very best of hands and that we are doing everything humanly possible to help him. Please understand if we are following Michael's wishes and keeping such a sensitive subject as health, as it has always been, in privacy.” Hopefully, Michael Schumacher can fully recover from his injuries as his absence has been heavily felt by the F1 community.
