Michael Schumacher really stunned the world when he was a huge seven-time F1 racer winner, but shortly after his retirement, a skiing accident brought him down. He has the support of friends, family, as well as a loyal fanbase on his website, and here is the latest Michael Schumacher Health Condition Update.

A recent headline from MNR Daily has a subtitle of "Wife Corrina sells family jet". This article does not mention that something like that has occurred. There are a lot of reports that property that belonged to the Schumachers is being liquidated, and it is pretty obvious that Schumacher's condition would result in high medical costs.

A recent article on the Express reveals that the couple has celebrated their 20th anniversary quietly.  Corinna, who has been described as Michael's "guardian angel", has given very few interviews even before the accident occurred.  She continues to raise their children Gina Marie, 16, and Mick, 14.  Mick is working on becoming a racer himself. 

The family has had to deal with a lot of false reporting when it comes to health as well as finances. In fact, a recent report from The Telegraph states that Corinna launched legal actions against three tabloids over speculation about his health that included such claims as Michael speaking his first words since the accident. A regional court in Munich has banned the reports about the former seven-time F1 champion, and the court's chamber dealing with press law considered the contested forms of coverage as being inadmissible in essential respects and banned them. As the court ruled against the magazines, and found that the coverage had "removed his [Michael's] privacy and was the subject of speculative hope and voyeuristic observation".

The three magazines were from Bunte, Freizeit Revue and Freizeit Spaß. Bunte claimed that "sometimes he opens his eyes" and "feels again Corinna's love", and the court thought this was "a clear predominance of vast voyeurism". Freizeit Revue stated that "his first words give so much hope" and that Michael could "apparently speak in a fragmented way". The court ruled that Schumaker was helpless and defenseless, and presented his abilities as severely-limited person to the public gaze. As for Freizeit Spaß magazine, they said that a "special therapy" for Schumacher had been revealed. However, the article focused on a doctor about the possibilities and prospects of rehabilitation for coma patients. The court ruled that the reader would have understood from the headline that a therapy had been specially developed for Schumacher.

Schumacher has received a recent mention from Luca di Montezemolo, the former CEO of Ferrari. A recent report from The Inquisitr has stated that Luca di Montezemolo was inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame and dedicated the honor to Schumacher. Montezemolo is quoted in saying this during his acceptance speech: "I don't know if I would have received this award without him [Schumacher]. It is dedicated to him, because he is trying to win his toughest race." Montezemolo also said: "He was not only someone I worked with but above all a friend with whom I shared so much. To know that he now lies in bed for such a long time is very sad."

According to The Bit Bag, Schumacher saved Ferrari when the company was forced to close production for weeks in 1992. Luca Di Montezemolo also had this to say about that time: "Michael was a crucial person. He arrived in 1996. He was with us until 2006. And then two more years as sort of a consultant. He's part of my life."

Schumacher is one of the most successful Formula One drivers in the history of the sport. He managed to claim the most world championships, fastest laps, pole positions, race victories, and overall race wins in a single season. He raced with Jordan, Benetton, Mercedes, and Ferrari, where he worked alongside Luca Di Montezemolo. Schumacher ultimately retired in 2012, shortly before the accident at the end of 2013.

Last November, the official Michael Schumacher website was relaunched in order to mark the 20th anniversary of the driver's first world championship. The site provides visitors a place to send messages to his wife and kids called "How to Wish Michael Well". Most of the official Michael Schumacher site is devoted to stories of him as a racing legend, but visitors can leave a personalized message by adding a hashtag of #keepfightingmichael to their tweets, which might take a while before it appears on the official site.

According to the Latinos Health, the Michael Schumacher Fans website has several messages for the racer that are now at 195, to this writing. These messages are for Michael as well as his family and friends, to give him enough strength to continue fighting. For those who want to send a message to the Schumacher family, feel free to visit the previously mentioned website and follow the instructions.
