Michael Schumacher, thankfully, has emerged from his coma and is on his way to recovery at long last. We're all very happy, but we know it's nothing close to what his wife Corrina feels. Ahead of the German Grand Prix, however, she released this heartfelt statement to the public:
"Dear motorsport friends,
This is a message to all of you who have lived a passion for Michael's sport in all the years together with him, and have supported him in the past half year off the track as well.
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.
I have to say your sympathies blew us all away! It's good to know that together we have 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 this fight. Until then I would like to wish you and your families the best as well."
We're happy that the massive outpouring of social media love and support has helped the family through this ordeal, and continue to wish them all the best.
