Five years of the accident, is now, and the question is still the same: How is he? 29. In December 2013, shortly after eleven o'clock, rushed to the seven-time formula 1 world champion Michael Schumacher while skiing in Méribel in France.
He rushed – almost next to the marked slopes – so unhappy that he bounced at a manageable speed so hard with the head against the thin blanket of Snow lugenden rocks that his Ski cracked helmet. In a hurry, the then 44-Year-old was taken away in a helicopter, and in the University hospital in Grenoble for emergency surgery. Official diagnosis: a severe, occasionally life-threatening traumatic brain injury.
for Months, the former racing driver was in an induced coma. In June 2014, then the last official Statement of his family to his state of health: The Patient is no longer in a coma, he had to leave the Hospital, and the "long Phase of Rehabilitation will continue," now.
Since the fall of 2014, the happening, according to reports in Gland, where the Schumacher's have right on the shores of lake Geneva for some time in a property. But what does this mean exactly: Can he run? Can he talk to? Can he communicate otherwise? The world does not know it. And there is a reason for this: Schumacher's family does not want the Details to circulate – which follows a logic, Schumacher also during his time as a racing driver has always been applied.
He always respected the fact that His nobody came to close
even then, there were basically two Michael Schumacher: the public, the every two weeks on the race tracks of the world full of chaos with his opponents mass. And the private, the stayed as far as possible that him and His nobody came close.

Of Motorsport for him was always a struggle
Meanwhile, almost forgotten a little, where Michael Schumacher came from. He came in no way from the centre of society, rather one of the edges. The father operating the go-kart track in Kerpen-Manheim, the mother of the Kiosk at the track. When the young Michael Schumacher wanted to have new tyres for his Kart, he had to pull out the garbage. Word for word from what others threw away, he shaped his career.
Who knows, understands, why the Motorsport for him always remained a struggle, an existential. 91 formula 1 victories has earned him this setting, seven world championship titles. All of the records until today. And it looks like it was a dramatic beat Volte of fate, that the very survival of the fighters of a as everyday slip on skis in such a way thrown out of the train.
