Michael Schumacher & # 39; fights & # 39; to regain his health
Michael Schumacher likes to watch F1 races on TV and make progress in his recovery, his former Ferrari boss said.
Jean Todt provided F1 fans with a rare update during an interview with Radio Monte-Carlo.
Todt, one of Schumacher's most trusted confidants, said the F1 star & # 39; good progress & # 39; and that the couple watched races together on TV.
He added: & # 39; I am always careful with such statements, but it is true. I saw the race together with Michael Schumacher in his home in Switzerland. & # 39;
& # 39; Michael is in the best hands and is well cared for in his home.
Michael Schumacher likes to watch F1 races on TV and he is making progress in his recovery, his former Ferrari boss said.
& # 39; He doesn't give up and keeps fighting. & # 39;
Todt added that his friend's communication problems have grieved him.
& # 39; His family fights just as much and our friendship can of course not be the same as before.
& # 39; Only because there is no longer the same communication as before.
& # 39; He continues to fight. And his family fights the same way. & # 39;
Todt is the head of the FIA governing body and regularly visits Schumacher in Switzerland.
The former Formula 1 world champion, who turned 50 on January 3, fell and hit his head on a rock during off-piste skiing at the Méribel resort in the French Alps in December 2013.
Michael suffered severe head injury in the accident and had to be put in a coma, where doctors said he was lucky to survive. He has not been seen in public since.
Four months after the accident, doctors began to pull Schumacher out of the coma and the trial was completed in June 2014.
Bernie Ecclestone said he believes Michael Schumacher will recover from head injuries sustained in a ski accident in a new trailer for a documentary about the driver's life (file)
He was transferred to a rehabilitation clinic and in September of that year he was taken home to continue his recovery in privacy.
Since then, little has been said about his state of health – although lawyer Felix Damm revealed to the court in 2016 that Schumacher cannot walk & # 39 ;, because the family has sued a German newspaper for reporting otherwise.
Son Mick has also talked about his father since he started racing Formula 2 for Ferrari, the old team of Michael, but did not reveal much about his health condition.
& # 39; The only person I would like to be (is) my father, & # 39; he said prior to the Spanish Grand Prix in May this year.
Asked what it was like to look back on his father's career, he added: & it's never easy. What my father did was extraordinary. I appreciate it more every day. & # 39;
Last month, F1 boss Bernie Eccleston also provided insight into the health of the famous driver.
In a trailer for & # 39; Schumacher & # 39 ;, shown to the public at the Cannes Film Festival, the billionaire says: & # 39; He is currently not with us. But when he gets better, he answers all the questions. & # 39;
The film will be released in Germany this year, with international rights still to be sold.
Schumacher & # 39; s father Rolf, 74, also appears in it and said: & # 39; He knew what he wanted as a child. That was no wonder, that was the skill he had worked for himself. & # 39;
Wife Corinna also speaks and says: & # 39; Michael is a hunter and does not give up. & # 39;
Schumacher fell into a coma after the accident in the French Alps in 2013 and has not been seen since. He is thought to be recovering at his home in Switzerland, cared for by his wife Corinna (shown together in 2005)
In January of this year, Corinna, who helped medical teams restore her husband's health, shared a rare update for his 50th birthday.
She wrote on Facebook: & # 39; We are happy and thank you for celebrating Michael & # 39; s 50th birthday with him and with us.
& # 39; You can be sure that he is in good hands and we are doing everything we can to help him.
& # 39; Please understand that we are following Michael's wishes and keeping a sensitive subject such as (his) health … in privacy.
& # 39; At the same time, we say thank you very much for your friendship and wish you a healthy and happy 2019. & # 39;
