Michael Schumacher’s wife Corinna has taken the time to thank fans for their great support through the dark days of his fight for life after the skiing accident he suffered and offered hope for his future recovery.
“The German Grand Prix gives me the perfect opportunity to cordially thank you all for the good wishes and positive energies you keep sending to Michael,” she said in a message published in the programme for Sunday’s race.
“I have to say your sympathies blew us all away. Good to know that together we made it through the hardest time.
“Now we are facing a phase which will presumably take a long time. We trust that – as for so many years in F1 – time will be Michael’s ally in the fight.”
Nico Rosberg, The German National football team and German bicycle riders in the Tour de France have all dedicated their victories to Michael in his road to recovery.
Fans will pay tribute this weekend at the German Grand Prix in Hockenheim.
