Corinna Schumacher has thanked the fans for their support as her husband Michael continues to recover from the injuries he sustained in a skiing accident at the end of 2013.
The last official update on the seven-time world champion’s condition was released on June 16th, stating that he had left Grenoble Hospital to continue his rehabilitation phase.
Corinna said the messages of support blew the Schumacher family away and added that he has made it through the hardest time.
In her first personal statement since the accident, published in the official German Grand Prix programme, she said: “This is a message to all of you who have lived a passion for Michael’s sport in all the years together with him, and who have supported him in the past half year off the track as well.
“The German Grand Prix gives me the perfect opportunity to cordially thank you all for the good wishes and positive energy you keep sending to Michael.
“I have to say your sympathies literally blew up all away! Good to know that together we made it through the hardest time!
“Now we are facing a phase which will presumably take a long time. We trust that – as for so many years in F1 – time will be Michael’s ally in this fight. Until then I would like to wish you and your families all the best as well.”
