Michael Schumacher’s family undergoing therapy to deal with their pain

Michael Schumacher’s family is undergoing therapy to deal with the impact of the F1 legend's condition.

The documentary, simply titled Schumacher, which was released on Netflix today, discusses the impact of the incident on his life and features comments from family and those close to the German.

Speaking in the film, wife Corinna Schumacher added that the family is receiving therapy to cope with his condition and a team is working around the clock to keep him comfortable.

“We’re together. We live together at home. We do therapy," she said. “We do everything we can to make Michael better and to make sure he’s comfortable. And to simply make him feel our family, our bond.

“And no matter what, I will do everything I can. We all will.

“We’re trying to carry on as a family, the way Michael liked it and still does. And we are getting on with our lives.”

The F1 legend’s son Mick, who was with him when he suffered the horrific skiing accident, admits the upcoming Netflix documentary about his father will be an "emotional" watch.

“I will be part of it, I was interviewed for it, yes," the 22-year-old said.

Schumacher is a seven-time F1 champ, a record he currently shares with Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton.

He retired from the sport in 2012 before suffering a horrific ski accident in December 2013, leaving him with severe head injuries. He has not been seen in public since.

Now former Ferrari boss Jean Todt, 75, has said the racing legend is still alive thanks to the work of the doctors and Corinna, 52, who 'wanted him to survive'.

Todt told Sport Bild: “I've spent a lot of time with Corinna since Michael had his serious skiing accident on December 29, 2013. She is a great woman and runs the family.

“She hadn't expected that. It happened suddenly and she had no choice. But she does it very well.”

He added: “Thanks to the work of his doctors and the cooperation of Corinna, who wanted him to survive, he survived – but with consequences.

“And right now you are fighting the consequences. We hope that things will slowly but surely improve.”
