Michael Schumacher Update: Reason behind news scarcity, Sabine Kehm reveals

It has been over two years since the Formula One (F1) legend Michael Schumacher has suffered a traumatic brain injury after a skiing accident in the French Alps. However, no real news on the progress of the seven-time world champion is available. His manager Sabine Kehm has revealed the reason for it.

“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 someday. That’s why now I still want to protect his wishes in that I don’t let anything get out.” Kehm said, as reported by planetf1.com.

Despite there being very few reports released on the health of Schumacher, Kehm has stressed on the fact that it will continue to be the scenario. This is done to respect Schumacher’s wish of privacy, especially after he retired from the sport.

In December 2013 Schumacher hit his head on the rock while skiing with his son, Mick Schumacher. The 47-year-old was taken to the Grenoble Hospital where he was placed in a medically induced coma. Many feared that the F1 legend would not survive the accident.

However, after three months, Schumacher was shifted to his family home on the shores of Lake Geneva, Switzerland to make progress on his recovery. Very little has been known since then on the health update of the German racing icon.

Although there have been various reports of the driver regaining consciousness and being able to walk, most of those news has been rubbished by his family. There are very few sources which can be trusted regarding the news of Schumacher. His manager Kehm is one of them.

“I understand it needs to be reported and that people are interested. But I believe as a journalist you should also ask yourself what and how you report it.” Kehm added.
