The German legend’s health has been a closely guarded secret since he suffered catastrophic brain injuries in a skiing accident in 2013.

Mr Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm has always insisted the racing superstar’s condition is not a public matter.

But today she broke her silence to issue a rare new statement after a poster was unveiled to commemorate his iconic career, released in cooperation with the racing legend’s Keep Fighting Foundation.

On behalf of the Schumacher family, Ms Kehm said: “We are delighted to be partnering with ZOOM to raise money for the Keep Fighting Foundation.

“This is a stunning way to celebrate Michael’s iconic career and by the way a very beautiful poster.”

Schumacher’s career saw him amass a record seven world titles and the most amount of wins (91) ever for a driver.

The poster depicts the 49-year-old driving his 2000 red Ferrari to victory on his way to his first title.

The German driver was placed in a medically induced coma for nearly six months but then in June 2014 was discharged from hospital and has since been receiving medical care at home near Lake Geneva in Switzerland.

Michael Schumacher’s medical bills are said to cost £115,000 a week from a team of 15 nurses and physicians.

However, his recovery and current condition has been shrouded in secrecy – with official updates few and far between.

The racing legend has reportedly been left paralysed following the tragic ski accident but those claims are unconfirmed.

It comes after his friend Jean Todt opened up on his grief over the racing legend’s condition in an emotional interview.

The president of the motor sport governing body FIA, said he visits the seven-time world champion “at least twice a month”.

Mr Todt, who worked alongside the racing ace throughout the bulk of his glittering career, is one of the few people that is allowed to visit the F1 driver at his home following the accident.

He said: “I simply say it is private. I see Michael, I love Michael. I see his family.

I wish the situation would be different.”
