Michael Schumacher 'can't communicate' following 2013 skiing accident says Ferrari boss – but 'he's there'

The son of Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari gave an insight into the state of health of Formula 1 racing legend Michael Schumacher – he could “not communicate”.

The seven-time world champion was in a medically-related coma for six months after a head injury while skiing in the French Alps in December 2013, according to Mirror.

In September 2014 he was relocated to his home on Lake Geneva, where he has been recovering ever since. Updates were infrequent as the family was keen to keep his condition private.

According to a report by the New Zealand Herald, the automaker’s vice chairman Piero Ferrari said at an awards ceremony in Rome: “I am sorry we are talking about him today as if he were dead dead, he is there but he cannot communicate . “

Recently, the former Ferrari boss and Schumacher’s close friend Jean Todt, who played a key role in shaping the German dominance in the early 2000s, said he hoped the 52-year-old would one day recover.

In an interview with the Bild newspaper, Todt said: “I have a lot of time with [Schumacher’s wife] Corinna, since Michael had his serious skiing accident.

“She’s a great woman and runs the family. She didn’t expect that. It happened suddenly and she had no choice.”

Last month, Netflix released a documentary Schumacher, which covers the life and career of the German on his way to establishing himself as one of the greatest racing drivers.

In it come Corinna and two children, Gina and Haas rookie driver Mick, among those who comment on the German driver’s trip.

Corinna bursts into tears when she finally speaks publicly about the incident that changed her and her family’s life forever.

On the Formula 1 website it says: “We get … insights into how the Schumachers are dealing with the situation, Corinna Schumacher speaks touchingly with her husband about life today and says:” Of course I miss Michael every day. But it’s not just “Me who misses him. The kids, the family, his father, everyone around him. I mean, everyone misses Michael, but Michael is still here. Different, but he’s here and there is.” us strength, I think. “
