Family still wants privacy for Schumacher

Michael Schumacher's manager says there is no change for now in the decision to keep the F1 legend's recovery from brain injuries completely private.

Sabine Kehm and the seven time world champion's family have been criticised by some for refusing to publicly update fans about the mysterious state of his health, some two and a half years after he struck his head on rocks whilst skiing.

"We all know that I cannot comment," manager Kehm, who also now handles the burgeoning racing career of Schumacher's 17-year-old son Mick, said this week.

She was speaking at an event to launch a forthcoming F1 drivers' charity football match later this month ahead of the German grand prix, in which Schumacher is to be honoured.

"We just have to accept that the family wants to continue to protect their privacy," Kehm is quoted by Kolner Express newspaper.

"Of course, Michael will not disappear but at the moment the private situation is so difficult that unfortunately no insight can be given. There must be understanding for this," she added.
