Michael Schumacher’s website has been re-launched to mark the 20th anniversary of his first World Championship, carrying a message to wellwishers from the seven-times World Champion’s family.
‘Your wishes give us strength,’ reads the message on www.michael-schumacher.de. ‘Still we receive wishes for Michael to get well soon every day, and still we are stunned by the sheer amount of sympathies.
‘We can only always thank you for facing this fight together with him and us. We remain confident and hope the best for Michael. Your strength is helping us to keep supporting him.’
The 45-year-old is continuing his rehabilitation at home after suffering severe head injuries in a skiing accident in the French Alps in December 2013.
Admitted to hospital in Grenoble at first, it was announced in April that Schumacher was showing ‘moments of consciousness’.
In June, it was announced that he was no longer in a coma and had also been transferred to the University Hospital of Lausanne, in the west of Switzerland close to the family home on the shore of Lake Geneva.
Schumacher was allowed home in September, when the last update on his condition was released. “Considering the severe head injuries he suffered, progress has been made in the past weeks and months. There is still, however, a long and difficult road ahead,” his manager Sabine Kehm said at the time.
The F1 fraternity have been united in wishing Schumacher well, with the German’s former Mercedes team carrying a message of ‘#KeepFightingMichael’ on their cars since the start of the season.
Schumacher clinched his first world title in on November 13 1994 for Benetton at the Australian Grand Prix in Adelaide.
