Michael Schumacher ‘s friend and former boss Ross Brawn has revealed there are hopes a "solution in the future" will be found for the Formula 1 legend’s health.
It has been five years since the seven-time world champion suffered traumatic brain injury from a ski accident with his health still largely a mystery as his close circle of family and friends maintain his privacy.
But fans have been offered hope by Brawn, who insists his team believe progress could be made soon.
“We’re all optimistic about finding solutions in the future," Brawn told BBC 5 Live. "And that there’ll be a time when things will move forward with Michael.”
Brawn also touched on recently how Schumacher could demoralise his rivals.
“Some of what Michael did was about undermining the enemy and destroying their confidence," said Brawn.
“Michael would be on the rostrum with two guys wilting, barely able to stand up, and he’d be bouncing around and they would be looking at him thinking: ‘God, what on earth is this creature we’re competing with?’”
A former Formula One racer has revealed why stars of the sport such as Sebastian Vettel aren’t allowed to visit Michael Schumacher.
The German hit his head on a rock and needed emergency surgery while skiing down a mountain. He is currently receiving round-the-clock treatment in Lake Geneva.
Schumacher has not been seen publicly for five years after suffering life-changing injuries during a ski accident in December 2013.
But he still casts an impressive shadow over the sport.
The 50-year-old’s wife, Corinna, issued a rare statement on his health on the eve of his birthday.
She told fans the family are doing "everything humanly possible" to help the stricken former Ferrari driver.
"We are very happy to celebrate Michael’s 50th birthday tomorrow together with you and thank you from the bottom of our hears that we can do this together," she said.
