Michael Schumacher’s loved ones are keeping details of Schumacher’s condition a closely-guarded secret, but according to his close friend, Ross Brawn, they are ‘extremely hopeful they’ll see him as they once knew him’.
The 47-year-old Formula 1 great is continuing to recover from serious head injuries suffered in a skiing accident in 2013.
Brawn, the former technical director at Ferrari, has already revealed there have been some ‘encouraging signs’ in the driver’s recovery. However, his current condition remains unknown to the public.
In an interview with the Guardian, Brawn said he still visited his friend.
‘The family are conducting his convalescence in private and I need to respect that. So I don’t want to comment on his condition beyond saying we’re extremely hopeful we’ll see Michael as we knew him at some point in the future.’
In recent days, officially social media accounts have been set up for Michael Schumacher by publicity team. The accounts include a Facebook page and Instagram account. His official Facebook page has already recived 1.5million likes.
In September a German court was told that Schumacher, who fell and hit his head on a rock in the ski accident in the French Alps, remained unable to walk.
