Michael Schumacher’s health is one of the biggest mysteries in the field of sports. This is because his family chose to keep his condition a secret following his severe brain injury incurred from a freak skiing accident in December 2013.

According to Express, with the lack of any update about their favorite and greatest racer of all-time, the fans are reportedly begging Schumacher’s family to release some news about the progress of his recovery. This may be why the family revealed some bits of news earlier this year.

Although vague, they said that Michael Schumacher is doing fine and that he is in good hands. The message was transmitted via social media, on the racing champ’s official Facebook page.

New update about Schumacher’s health condition

It has been months since Schumacher’s family released a statement and now, his close pal is sharing something to the fans. Jean Todt, Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) President, and former Ferrari head is one of the luckiest people to be allowed to visit Schumi, and during his most recent visitation, he is happy to announce that his friend is doing great.

In fact, he allegedly said that Michael Schumacher is already watching racing events on TV, as per The Sun. He said that his friend has been making good progress lately and he even watch TV with him, which is a big improvement already.

"Michael is in the best hands and is well looked after in his house,” he told the publication. "He does not give up and keeps fighting and his family is fighting the same way.”

He added that the only sad part is that Schumacher hasn’t recovered his speech fully yet. But he clarified that this does not mean that their friendship can not be the same as it was before.

Michael's racing background

Meanwhile, as shared on Tuko, Michael Schumacher is a seven-time World Champion in Formula One races. He won his trophies in the years 1994, 1995 and 2000 to 2004. He has always been known as the world’s best F1 driver for his achievements and unrelentless dedication to his sport.
