It has been 10 years since Michael Schumacher suffered life-threatening injuries in a skiing accident and the latest update on the F1 racing star is not promising.
Close friend Roger Benoit said Schumacher is a “case without hope,” according to the Daily Mail, which cited Benoit’s interview this week with the Swiss newspaper Blick.
Schumacher hit his head on a rock and suffered severe brain damage while skiing the French Alps in December 2013.
Schumacher, who was wearing a helmet while skiing with his son Mick, was placed in medically-induced coma for 250 days.
Schumacher returned home after that, but updates on his condition are extremely rare as those close to him have prioritized his privacy.
Benoit, in his interview, when asked for a specific update on Schumacher’s condition, gave this chilling statement: “This sentence says everything about how (Michael) has been doing for over 3,500 days. A case without hope.”
Schumacher’s wife Corinna broke her silence and spoke about the accident for the first time in eight years for a Netflix documentary.
“Michael is here,” Corinna said in 2021. “Different, but he’s here, and that gives us strength, I find.
“We’re together. We live together at home. We do therapy. We do everything we can to make Michael better and to make sure he’s comfortable. And to simply make him feel our family, our bond. And no matter what, I will do everything I can. We all will.”
Now 54, Michael Schumacher hasn’t been seen in public in a decade.
Schumacher was an F1 racing legend, winning the Drivers’ World Championships seven times, which is tied with Lewis Hamilton for the most titles all-time.
Schumacher’s 91 career Grand Prix wins are second to Hamilton’s 103 victories.
