Michael Schumacher is ‘NOT bed ridden or surviving on tubes’ as new details of F1 legend’s recovery emerges

Friends and family have shed new light on the condition of the seven-time Formula One champ after a horror ski accident in 2013.

They reveal how he is receiving £50,000-a-week medical care while being treated in his home – not at a specialised hospital in a Swiss chateau.

But the Daily Mail have quoted German magazine Bravo as reporting Schumacher is to be moved to a clinic in Dallas, Texas, that specialises in treating brain injuries.

Mark Weeks, the director, told the magazine: “We have a lot of experience with patients who are suffering this kind of trauma.

“There is probably no clinic in Europe that treats as many cases as we do.”

It comes after a German archbishop said last month that the legend “senses that loving people are around him”.

Georg Gänswein has told how he paid an emotional visit to see the Schumacher in 2016 as he recovered from his horror skiing accident three years earlier.

He said although Schumacher’s face has “become a little fuller” the record-breaking driver still looks the same as he did when last seen by his millions of fans.

“I sat opposite him, took hold of both hands and looked at him,” the 62-year-old – who is one of Pope Francis’s key advisers – said according to German newspaper Bild.

“He senses that loving people are around him, caring for him and, thank God, keeping the overly curious public away.”

Gänswein added: “Of course, I include Michael Schumacher and his family in my prayers.”

The much-loved sports star was critically injured when he fell while skiing with son Mick in the French Alps in December 2013.

Earlier it the star’s manager revealed Schumacher had a ‘secret dream’ to disappear from public life.

The race ace’s family have always remained tight-lipped about the star’s condition leaving his legions of fans in the dark about his health.

It is believed the 49-year-old German is being cared for by a team of medical experts at his luxury home in Gland near Lake Geneva in Switzerland.

Schuey – who won 91 races in a record-breaking F1 career – is reportedly receiving £50,000-a-week treatment from a team of 15 physicians and nurses.
