Michael Schumacher health update, wife Corinna selling Lake Geneva mansion

Michael Schumacher’s wife reportedly sells the couple’s mansion as the Formula 1 icon continues his lengthy rehabilitation.

The tall German suffered devastating head injuries while skiing in the French Alps in 2013 and was subsequently placed in a medically induced coma.

Since his accident almost eight years ago, there have been only bits and pieces of information about Schumacher’s ongoing recovery.

According to reports, Corinna Schumacher recently marketed the 20,000 square meter family farm for around £ 5million (AU $ 9million).

The couple bought the Swiss estate – located on Lake Geneva – for around $ 5.4 million in 2002.

The Schumacher family would move to another house in Gland where Michael can continue his rehabilitation.

Michael’s son made his F1 debut earlier this year, representing Haas for the first time at the Bahrain Grand Prix at the end of March.

Mick became the third Schumacher to race in F1, his uncle Ralf Schumacher starting 180 races in a ten-year career.

He won the Formula 2 title in 2020 and has been touted for a potential stint with Ferrari in the years to come.

Last year FIA President Jean Todt confirmed that Schumacher was closely following his son’s progress in a heartwarming revelation.

Todt visits Schumacher on a monthly basis and is a regular source of health information for the 52-year-old.

Schumacher has won five consecutive World Drivers’ Championships under Todt at Ferrari.

“I see Michael very often – once or twice a month,” Todt told RTL France.

“My answer is the same all the time – he fights. We can only wish for him and his family that things improve.

Renowned neurosurgeon Erich Riederer speculated in a documentary that the seven-time F1 champion was a shell of himself.

“I think he’s in a vegetative state, which means he’s awake,” Riederer told TMC last year.

“He’s breathing, his heart is beating, he can probably sit up and take baby steps with help, but no more.”

“I think that’s the maximum for him. Is there any chance he’ll see him as he was before his accident? I really don’t think so.
