Michael Schumacher’s family have released a rare statement ahead of his 50th birthday.

The former Ferrari driver and seven-time world champion suffered serious head injuries following a skiing accident in 2013, and has not been seen out in public since.

His extremely private family have rarely updated fans on his condition, but have now released a rare statement days before he’ll celebrate his 50th birthday.

“Please understand if we are following Michael’s wishes and keeping such a sensitive subject as health, as it has always been, in privacy. At the same time we say thank you very much for your friendship and wish you a healthy and happy year 2019.

“We are very happy to celebrate Michael’s 50th birthday tomorrow together with you and thank you from the bottom of our hearts that we can do this together,” said the family, before making an amazing announcement.

“As a gift to him, you and us, Keep Fighting Foundation has created a virtual museum. The Official Michael Schumacher App will be released tomorrow, so that we can review all together Michael’s successes. The app is another milestone in our effort to do justice to him and you, his fans, by celebrating his accomplishments. We wish you a lot of fun with it.

“Michael can be proud of what he has achieved, and so are we! That’s why we remember his successes with the Michael Schumacher Private Collection exhibition in Cologne, by publishing memories in social media and by continuing his charitable work through the Keep Fighting Foundation. We want to remember and celebrate his victories, his records and his jubilation.”

In 2016, his manager Sabine Kehm revealed the reason why his family had kept his life so private following the accident.

She said: “In general the media have never reported on Michael and Corinna’s private life. When he was in Switzerland, for example, it was clear he was a private individual. Once in a long discussion, Michael said to me: ‘You don’t need to call me for the next year, I’m disappearing.



“I think it was his secret dream to be able to do that some day. That’s why now I still want to protect his wishes in that I don’t let anything get out.”

Meanwhile, his wife Corinna Betsch told the press: “The decision to protect his privacy from the public has been taken in Michael’s interest.”
