Schumacher family paying hefty medical fees for treatment

Whilst the condition of the seven-times Formula 1 world champion remains unclear, the amount spent on his recovery is reported to exceed €10 million a year.

It has emerged that €191,000 a week is the figure spent on the treatment of seven-time Formula 1 world champion Michael Schumacher, over two years on from suffering life-threatening injuries whilst skiing in the French Alps.

The former Ferrari driver was with his family on holiday in the French Ski resort of Meribel when his head struck a rock when on the slopes, leaving Schumacher in a coma for six months.

His family have continually asked for privacy, and as such the exact condition of the German is unclear, but according to both the Daily Mail and Daily Express, they are allegedly spending around €10.2 million a year in medical expenses.

“I am continually notified about the status of Schumacher, and sadly it is not good,” said former President of Ferrari Luca Cordero di Montezemolo recently, one of the few who are privy to the condition of the Formula 1 legend.

A significant figure it may be, but given Schumacher’s earnings from a long and illustrious career this will matter very little for his family as they continue to hope and pray for his recovery.
