Michael Schumacher could be flown to the US for treatment described as a “new hope” for the stricken F1 star, according to leading Swedish newspaper Expressen. The former F1 star suffered catastrophic brain injuries after a horrific accident while skiing in the French Alps in 2013.
Schumacher, 48, has been recovering in total secrecy at his family home near Lake Geneva in Switzerland, according to reports. The tormented family of the seven-time F1 champion has rarely spoken out about his condition, but according to widespread reports in European media, German magazine Bravo has published an update on his condition.
Citing Bravo, broadcaster Eurosport reports that his wife Corinna has “decided to try new care” in Texas, where his family owns a cattle ranch. According to Eurosport: “Michael Schumacher will soon fly with his family in Texas to continue his treatment at a brain trauma centre.” A brain injury specialist named Dr Mark Meeks has a clinic in the US state that could be a “new hope” for the driving legend, Expressen said in the report, again citing Bravo: “There is probably no clinic in Europe that handles as many cases as we do.”
