For the past 6 years, Corinne has avoided journalists as best she could.
In December 2013, the seven-time Formula 1 champion was seriously injured while skiing in the Alps. Doctors, fearing for his life, brought Michael Schumacher into an artificial coma … Since then, updates on the health status of the rider almost never appear in the media. The Schumacher family is silent, and the few news about it that fly around the Internet at the speed of a car are most often from untrustworthy sources. The other day, the wife of the rider gave her first interview since the tragedy. It was published in the Mercedes’ She Magazine.
In a conversation with a journalist, Corinna remembered how Michael gave her a ranch in Switzerland on their 10th wedding anniversary in 2005 and how then her fascination with horses began, which continues to this day. It was her husband who taught her how to care for animals. She now has 40 horses. Most of the interviews were devoted to this particular topic: the enthusiasm of the Schumacher family in equestrian sports .
Corinne is still not ready to talk about her husband’s condition. But she explained why she and the children have been silent for so many years:
You can be calm, Michael is in good hands. We are doing everything in our power to help him. We can’t reveal more details, as we follow the instructions of Michael, who wants this whole story to remain confidential for now. I’m sure he would do the same for me. I will always remember who I should be thankful for.
Recall, December 29, 2013 Schumacher with his son and his friends went skiing in Meribel, a resort in the French Alps. Michael drove off the track and, tripping over a stone, fell and hit his head on a ledge of a rock – the helmet cracked. At first, the athlete was conscious, but soon he had to be connected to a ventilator. After two neurosurgical operations, he was introduced into an artificial coma. In the summer of the following year, he was taken out of this state and transferred to another hospital for subsequent rehabilitation. From there, Michael went home, where he is to this day.
