Michael Schumacher was awarded the State Prize, which was received by his wife Corinna along with their daughter Gina.
Members of Michael’s family received the North Rhine-Westphalia State Prize for outstanding international sporting achievements, as well as in recognition of his exemplary social work and services to his native state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The award took place at the Motorworld event in Cologne. This award is considered the highest award in the land. Traditionally, it is awarded once a year, but the last award took place in 2019 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
At the event, Corinna Schumacher burst into tears in front of the audience when she heard applause dedicated to her husband.
As you know, at the end of 2013, he received a severe head injury in the Alps while skiing. Doctors introduced Michael into a state of artificial coma. He then received treatment in Paris in September 2019, where he received a stem cell transplant at the Georges Pompidou Clinic.
There is very little information about his health, which his wife Corinna cares about. Only a few very close people have access to Michael. There is no exact information about the state of his health at present.
According to Mick Schumacher, the youngest son of the legendary champion, who moved to Formula 1 last season, he and his father would now understand each other differently. “Now we could speak the same language – the language of motorsport. We would have something to talk about, and I always think how great that would be. I’d give up everything just for this, yeah.”
And Corinna said in the Netflix movie: “Michael is here. Another, but he is here, and this gives us strength. We are together. We live together at home, we do therapy. We do our best to make Michael feel comfortable. And just to make him feel our family, our connection. We are trying to live as a family, as Michael liked it. We get on with our lives.”
