According to Michael Schumacher's former boss, the accident brought him and the F1 legend's family closer. He said that after the accident, he stayed close to the family, close enough for him to confidently declare hope on the German racer's health progress. He ended his statement saying that he is closer to the family now than before the skiing accident took place.

Michael Schumacher, world renown, Formula One racing driver for Jordan Grand Prix, Benetton and Ferrari claimed the historic seven-time world champion. In December 2013 the F1 legend suffered multiple head and brain injuries when he met a skiing accident.

On December 20, a specially designed Bell 429 Global Ranger tool Michael Schumacher to Majorka, a Spanish island. The helicopter was specifically equipped for patient transport.  Joining him on the light was his wife and two children.

At 2:35 p.m. the helicopter landed on the family's private helipad after they stopped to refuel near the French town of Pamiers.  Michael Schumacher who was then wrapped in a brown blanket was reportedly attended immediately by nurses who wore surgical masks.

Michael Schumacher's trip was to keep him away from the cold Swiss winter weather. Health experts said that the mild Mediterranean climate will help boost the F1 superstar's rehabilitation.  The F1 superstar and his family spent the whole holiday season as well as his 50th birthday on their holiday home which his wife acquired in July 2018 at £26.3m.

With the assurance that Michael Schumacher' wife gave saying that they are doing everything they can to help the F1 superstar, Schumacher's former boss has a  reason to believe that there is hope to the legend's health progress.
