Michael Schumacher, his wife Corinna finally speaks: the conditions of the former Ferrari


Almost six years after that terrible December 29, 2013 that changed the lives of Michael Schumacher, his family and millions of fans around the world, his wife Corinna breaks the silence and, in an interview granted to ‘She's Mercedes Magazine', the German-language tabloid of the Stuttgart-based carmaker, spoke for the first time of her husband and the great skill in riding of her daughter Gina Maria, a talent that the seven-time Formula 1 champion had glimpsed before all when Gina was just a little girl. Gina Maria turned 22 last February 22 and in recent days she has been busy in Verona in the Elementa Masters Premiere, a reining event that Michael's daughter has literally dominated, winning all the competitions, including Freestyle in costume for which the German's first child chose to pay homage to her father, wearing Ferrari's overalls and colors.

Corinna: "I thank Michael for all I have"

Gina Maria inherited her passion for riding from mother Corinna, also a reining champion and one of the world's leading breeders of horses. Corinna recalled how, thanks to the help of her husband who twenty years ago, on the occasion of the tenth wedding anniversary, he gave her a ranch with 40 horses, he was able to realize one of his greatest dreams. "When I was 30 years old – her words – I wanted very much to have a horse and Michael came with me to Dubai because I wanted to buy an Arab thoroughbred. Today it makes me happy to see my daughter being able to do what he loves and having already achieved success. But I don't forget who I have to thank for all this, my husband".

Michael, says Corinna, was the first in the family to have understood her daughter's great attitude. "He told me that one day Gina Maria would be better than me and I didn't really like it then. I worked day and night with horses trying to understand everything. But he said that I was too cute and that Gina had more pulse and character and that my husband saw it".

"Michael is in the best possible hands"

When she was asked about the condition of Michael who continues the rehabilitation from the terrible skiing accident in the French Alps, Corinna maintained the reserve line, confirming the few official information that has been provided by her and by the lady in these years press and historical manager of the German, Sabine Kehm. "You can be sure – said Corinna – that Michael is in the best possible hands and that we are doing everything to help him. Please understand that we are following Michael's wishes to maintain privacy on a subject as delicate as his health".

Corinna therefore maintains the absolute reserve on the physical condition of her husband who, in the terrible accident on Meribel's snows, suffered a very serious head injury, without appearing in public. To know his real state of health are in very few, between family and some trusted friend who can go and visit him. "Michael is a fighter and does not give up – Corinna has repeatedly said in the various events and events that in recent years have celebrated the career of the great Ferrari champion.
