Ralf Schumacher has revealed he has little contact with his brother Michael’s family after the seven-time Formula 1 world champion suffered life-threatening injuries in December 2013.

Updates on Schumacher’s condition are being kept extremely private by his close family members, and even the former champion’s brother is not fully aware of his brother’s condition.

While Schumacher emerged from a coma 250 days after the accident, he underwent two operations to remove blood clots. Not much has been revealed since, except that he faces a long road to recovery.

Ralf Schumacher told German magazine Bunte that he may be Michael’s brother, but even that has not allowed him to remain within the inner circle of the family.

“Unfortunately, sometimes life isn’t fair,” he said when asked about contact with his brother’s family.

“We have to accept it.

“When I see his children Gina-Maria and Mick, my heart smiles,” he added.

“If anyone in the family wants my advice, I’m there. They go their own way.”

Schumacher’s wife, Corinna, has protected privacy surrounding her husband’s health while only a small number of people knew the full extent of the situation.

Schumacher’s family lawyer, Felix Damm, told German news agency LTO that no official report was ever released to the public to protect the family’s privacy from the media.

“Of course we discussed a lot about how this is possible. “So we also considered whether a final report on Michael’s health might be the right way to do this,” he said.

“But that wouldn’t have been the end and there would have to be constantly updated ‘water level reports’. Because as those affected, it is not up to you to put an end to the media.

“They could pick up a report like that again and again and ask, ‘And what does it look like now?’ one, two, three months or years after the message.

“And if we wanted to take action against this reporting, we would have to deal with the argument of voluntary self-disclosure.”
