Michael Schumacher update: F1 legend manager releases a rare statement about the icon


Michael Schumacher's manager issued a statement praising an impressive tribute in support of the Formula 1 legend.

The seven times world champion suffered serious injuries after a tragic skiing accident in the French Alps, almost five years ago.

He was on vacation with friends and family when he suffered a severe injury to the head & # 39; on December 29, 2013.

Schumacher was taken by helicopter to Grenoble hospital, demanding "immediate neurosurgical intervention" and underwent two life-saving operations.

He then remained in a coma, with doctors describing his condition as "extremely serious" the day after his admission.

It is believed that he would have died if he were not wearing ski helmet.

Her medical condition has been kept close by since then by her family and administration.

It is understood that Schumacher, 49, is staying in the town of Gland in a luxury residence overlooking Lake Geneva, Switzerland.

It is there that the iconic driver is said to be receiving care and treatment 24 hours a day from a team of doctors and nurses.

German Schumacher has won 91 races in a phenomenal F1 career. And his achievements have now been immortalized in a new poster celebrating his success on the track while fans pray for the popular pilot to get well soon.

He shows Schumacher at the wheel of the car he drove for victory at the 2000 F1 World Championship, his first Scuderia Ferrari title and third overall title.

The image is inspired by the Art Deco posters of F1's past and is the tenth of the series, accompanying posters of famous riders and circuits like Nigel Mansell, Circuit of the Americas, Silverstone and Monaco.

The Keep Fighting Foundation will receive a donation for the sale of each print.

At the bottom, he reads "champion" with all his seven F1 triumphs – including 1994, 1995, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004 listed next to each letter.

Schumacher's manager, Sabine Kehm, revealed that she was delighted with the tribute and issued a rare statement on behalf of the Schumacher family to welcome the new partnership with ZOOM.

"This is an amazing way to celebrate Michael's iconic career and, by the way, a very beautiful poster," said Kehm, who said Schumacher's health remains a private family issue.

"We are very pleased to partner with ZOOM to raise money for the Keep Fighting Foundation."

Alex Sylt, founder of Crooked Cartoon who produced the image, said: "We are delighted that Keep Fighting has chosen to work with ZOOM on this project.

"I would like to thank the Schumacher family and Ferrari for their support of this project.

"Michael's record in the championship is one of my favorite memories of F1 and I have the honor of celebrating his career through my art."

The Keep Fighting Foundation was born out of one of Schumacher's phrases he said in 2007.

He said, "I always believed that you would never, never give up and you should always keep fighting even when there is a small chance."
