Michael Schumacher 2015 Update — Since Michael Schumacher's skiing accident in Meribel resort in 2013, fans have been unaware of his condition after his family declared a media blackout. Even up to now, many have hoped for some great news.
The 47-year-old seven-time F1 World Champ Michael Schumacher was reported in critical condition after suffering a head injury in a skiing accident in France in December 2013. As previously reported, he was placed under a medically induced coma to reduce the swelling of his brain and had come out from it last June. The injury, which was initially diagnosed of cranial trauma, was caused by when he fell and hit a rock while skiing with his son in the French Alpine Ski resort of Meribel on Dec. 29.
Nearly two years after the skiing accident, Michael Schumacher's condition remains unknown. Though his recovery is believed to be making progress, the world of racing continues to show support for the beloved F1 racer. According to The Bit Bag, former Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo joined thousands of fans and supporters as he dedicated his Hall of Fame award to the greatest F1 racing superstar of all time.
"I don't know if I would have received this award without him," the former Ferrari president said. "It is dedicated to him, because he is trying to win his toughest race."
"He was not only someone I worked with, but above all a friend with whom I shared so much," he added, as per Australia Network. "To know that he now lies in bed for such a long time is very sad."
Luca di Montezemolo stepped down in September 2014 after more than two decades of leading Ferrari. His resignation came after an internal power battle with Sergio Marchionne, the current Ferrari chairman.
Despite Michael Schumacher's manager Sabine Kelm's announcement earlier this year that the F1 legend was making progress in his recovery, it has been claimed that he has been left a mute with limited awareness of his environment. He is also unable to walk after the crash. However, the claims about his health are still unconfirmed, Daily Express has learned.
Meanwhile, Michael Schumacher's family is facing increasing care costs with the current spending on his rehabilitation estimated at over £10 million, with a £100,000 spending per week.
In separate news, fellow F1 Driver Jules Bianchi just passed away on July 17, after he remained in a critical condition in a Japan hospital when he suffered severe brain injuries after his vehicle skidded off a wet track on Oct. 5.
