Michael Schumacher’s wife Cornia thanked her husband’s fans for their support in a letter this week.
The message was circulated as a part of the official program for this weekend’s Formula One German Grand Prix. Her letter is written in German, but a translated version reads “”the German Grand Prix gives me the perfect opportunity to cordially thank you all for the good wishes and positive energies you keep sending to Michael.
Schumacher suffered head injuries during a skiing accident last year in December and was airlifted to Grenoble University Hospital Center in France where he underwent months of treatment. Last month, doctors there finally pulled him out of a medically-induced coma when he was sent to Lausanne University Hospital near his home in Switzerland.
“I have to say your sympathies blew us all away. Good to know that together we made it through the hardest time,” she wrote. “Now we are facing a phase which will presumably take a long time. We trust that—as for so many years in F1—time will be Michael’s ally in the fight.”
