December 29 marks ten years since Michael Schumacher, the famous Formula 1 champion, was seriously injured in a skiing accident. Schumacher’s family has maintained a veil of privacy about his condition with only rare updates. A recent report in German magazine BILD provides rare insights into his rehabilitation.

The article details the 24-hour care Schumacher receives at his home, involving up to 15 medical specialists. His former office now serves as a private hospital that caters to his daily needs. It is worth noting that Schumacher’s connection to his illustrious racing career remains alive through various means. His care team plays radio traffic from his Formula 1 days, and he is driven around in a “loud” Mercedes AMG intended to stimulate his brain with familiar sounds.

Jean Todt, a close friend and former Ferrari team boss, shared his experiences with Schumacher in an interview with L’Equipe. Despite the drastic changes in Schumacher’s life, Todd feels proud to share moments with him, and often watch Formula 1 races together. He commented poignantly:

“His life is different and I have the honor of sharing moments with him.

“Unfortunately, fate struck him ten years ago and he is no longer the Michael we knew in Formula 1.”

Michael’s brother, Ralph, also spoke about the tragic skiing accident. He explained to Bild newspaper:

”This fate has changed our family. I can say that his accident was a very bad and drastic experience for me as well. But not just for me, for example also for Michael’s children: Mick, as we all know, was there as a young teenager at the time. Unfortunately, life is not always fair and unfortunately there has been a lot of bad luck here as well.

He continued:

“I miss my Michael ever since. Life is unfair sometimes. Michael had been lucky many times in his life, but then this tragic accident happened. Fortunately, modern medical options have made it possible to do some things, but still… Nothing like it was before.
