Michael Schumacher’s wife Corinna has been ‘like a PRISONER’ for the last 10 years trying to keep his condition private, shunning parties and lunches to avoid questions, claims the couple’s close friend Eddie Jordan

Michael Schumacher’s wife has lived ‘like a prisoner’, shunning lunches and parties, to keep his condition secret, according to Eddie Jordan. Schumacher suffered a skiing accident in December 2013 and was placed into a medically induced coma. Schumacher once described his wife, 54, as his ‘guardian angel’ and she has taken total control of blocking out any noise around his condition. One of the few that has been granted visits to Schumacher has been former-FIA president Jean Todt, who revealed in May 2021 that he makes two visits a month to see the German. In a rare discussion on Schumacher, Todt claimed the German is ‘in the best hands’ with the medical team he has working at his home. Schumacher and Todt have long been close having enjoyed a successful relationship at Ferrari – where the German driver won an unprecedented five consecutive world titles between 2000 and 2004. Last year Todt joined Corinna, and her daughter, Gina, to collect the State Prize of North Rhine-Westphalia in Cologne on behalf of Schumacher. Schumacher is one of the most successful F1 drivers of all time, having claimed seven world titles – 1994, 1995, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004.
