Corrina Schumacher, Formula One (F1) legend Michael Schumacher's wife, is reportedly not-so-happy with the latest false reports and wrong health updates circling around the media about her husband. Numbers of death hoaxes released have saddened the 47-year-old.

Negatively affected with several false reports about Michael Schumacher roaming the internet and print media, lawyers of the Schumacher family had to come out in press release with some of the real and latest health updates about the F1 racer. It was then revealed that Schumacher is still unable to walk and is still relying on his wheelchair. This announcement really made the F1 racer fans merely disappointed.

"He cannot walk," unveiled Felix Damm, the lawyer who was then representing the Schumacher family in court said in an interview with The Telegraph. The last say about Schumacher's health condition is expected to be announced sometime this month.

Another report by a German magazine called Bunte said that Schumacher was slowly on his path to recovery and had made progress in his condition. However, Schumacher's family confirmed it negative and then decided to file a lawsuit amounting to $44,860-112,150. 

More so, Sabine Kehm, manager of Michael Schumacher testify against the claims made by the said German publication. She also called out Bunte for irresponsible reporting. Schumacher's family from Hürth, Germany, has been extremely quiet about any news related to the health of the F1 legend.

The legendary racer's woes started when Schumacher was skiing with his son Mick and some of his friends in the Alps on December 29, 2013. It was then unfortunately when the F1 legend hit his head on a rock, injuring his brain.

After two severe operations, Schumacher was placed in a medically induced coma for almost around six months. In June 2014, the injured man was shifted from his hospital to his home on the shores of Lake Geneva, Switzerland.

Schumacher's supporters are on a big hope that their champion will recover and hit the tracks with numerous championships again.
