F1 legend Michael Schumacher ‘is getting beter’ says his wife

Michael Schumacher’s wife has spoken publicly for the first time about his skiing accident, saying he is “getting better” after coming out of a coma last month. Corinna Schumacher, 45, (pictured) told Neue Post, a German women’s weekly magazine, she was encouraged by the former Formula One driver’s recovery.

It’s getting better, slowly certainly, but in any case it’s improving.

Her husband, 45, suffered serious brain injuries when his head hit a rock while he was on a skiing holiday in the French Alps in December. The seven-times F1 champion was reportedly travelling at speeds of up to 60mph when the accident happened. It is thought he was saved by his skiing helmet, which split on impact. Last month, he was transferred from Grenoble university hospital to Lausanne University Hospital, close to his family’s home in Switzerland.
