Michael Schumacher's Manager Hopeful That 'He Will One Day Be Back With Us'

Michael Schumacher's Manager Hopeful That 'He Will One Day Be Back With Us'
By Gary Reilly

A couple of weeks ago the former Ferrari president, Luca di Montezemolo, delivered a regrettable update on the little known situation surrounding Michael Schumacher's condition. Ever since the skiing accident which left him with severe brain injury in December 2013, there have been intermittent updates on Schumacher's rehabilitation.

Some of those updates have been positive, some, like that from di Montezemolo have been negative with the former Ferrari boss stating that 'I have news and unfortunately it is not good'. He did not elaborate further and, understandably it left Schumacher's fans and well-wishers fearing the worst.

The truth is that few really know the condition that the Formula 1 great is currently in. His family have been clear in their search for privacy and it would seem that for the most part, that wish is being granted. However, every know and then erroneous reports do emerge and it's usually up to Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm to set the record straight.

Shortly before Christmas she criticised a German magazine for claiming that the 47 year old was once again walking when in fact that is not true. Kehm has been extremely careful not to exaggerate any progress over the past couple of years and speaking at an exhibition dedicated to Schumacher in Marburg, Germany, she delivered a suitably understated update on his condition.

He is the most successful driver in history and sometimes, on days like this, it is good to be reminded of it. Of course, Michael is not here and of course we miss him. We know what has happened and cannot change it.

We must accept it and hope with everything we have that with continued support and patience he will one day be back with us. Racing was his life and no one would have liked to have been here more than him.

Much like di Montezemolo's comments, that update from Kehm will serve to highlight the continuing seriousness of Schumacher's situation.
