It has been almost three years since celebrated German racing driver Michael Schumacher sustained a traumatic head injury that almost cost him his life. Updates on the retired racing driver's condition have been quite shady leaving a lot of his fans worried and hoping for a continuous recovery.
Michael Schumacher's health condition. Ever since the accident that almost cost the former Formula 1 driver his life happened, specifics on the former racing driver's condition have been hard to come by. Michael's family have been very protective of the details surrounding his condition.
It is not surprising that the lack of updates and reveals has fuelled speculations and allegations concerning Michael's health condition. There are claims that he actually has been a paralyzed and in a wheelchair. Others claim that he cannot walk or talk and that he cannot even remember who he is.
No one is certain what the retired racing driver's condition really is as most updates that do come out are generic and positive statements saying that he is showing signs of encouraging recovery. Any attempt to get details surrounding Michael's health will probably result in a lawsuit which is the case for one German publication.
Bunte, a German magazine, is currently facing a lawsuit from the family for publishing a claim that the retired F1 driver could finally walk again. The Bunte report has been denied by the family even calling it "irresponsible". Schumacher's manager has urged fans to continue praying for Michael's recovery and to respect his family's request for privacy.
The level of protectiveness the family of Schumacher has around the retired racing driver's condition is so high that even former manager, Willi Webber, is in the dark. According to Webber, he sent Michael flowers and card for his birthday but never got a response. He said, "There seems to be the fear that I would disclose something about Michael's condition but I would never do that. I would even sign a non-disclosure agreement."
