Former technical director of Michael Schumacher Ross Brawn has come out to comment on the status of the injured sportsman’s health.
Brawn said that he has been showing encouraging signs of recovery from his accident; Schumacher had undergone a serious skiing accident that has caused him severe injuries leaving him hospitalized and hanging on for dear life.
The former technical head said that there had been a lot of wrongful speculations about the sportsman in the media about the state and degree of his injury that has led to his family making a decision to keep his recovery private.
This is not a surprise seeing as Michael is one of the biggest names in the sport and a lot of people would want to be kept abreast of his development. The seven time world champion had sustained severe and multiple injuries to the head in an unfortunate skiing accident back in December 2013 in the resort of Mirabel, and since then, so much news had filtered out about his well being.
Speaking to BBC news. Brawn said;
“The family has chosen to conduct Michael’s convalescence in private and I must respect that, they are encouraging signs and we are all praying every day that we see more of them. So it is difficult for me to say very much and respect the family’s privacy.”
He reiterated that most of the speculations going around in the media about the champion’s condition are wrong and that the only prayer is for him to keep showing more signs of recovery.
He said; “Most of it is wrong and we just pray and hope every day that we continue to see some progress and that one day we can see Michael out and about and recovered from his terrible injuries.”
Schumacher has since been receiving specialist care at his residence at the shore of Lake Geneva since 2014.
