According to Corinna, Michael is still with them. She feels he is different but that "he's here" and believes that the family finds comfort knowing this.

Michael, one of the most decorated drivers in the history of the sport, suffered a horrifying accident during a holiday trip to the French Alps in 2013, which resulted in a traumatic head injury.

THE TRIP THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING

At the time, the now 52-year-old was skiing but ended up falling and hitting his head on a rock. The helmet he was wearing was cracked open and Michael had to be rushed to the nearest hospital in critical condition.

Doctors were forced to induce a coma and performed surgery on the racer. A year later, he was brought out of his coma and has been under intensive care at his home in Geneva, Switzerland, ever since.

In the documentary, which is scheduled to premiere on September 15, Corinna explained that the family is doing everything they can to make sure he is comfortable. She said:

"We're together. We live together at home. We do therapy. We do everything we can to make Michael better and to make sure he's comfortable. And to simply make him feel our family, our bond."

LIFE GOES ON

Corinna stated that she is willing to do everything she can for him, so is their family, and that they are doing their best to move on as a family because that is what Michael wanted and still does.

RESPECTING HIS WISHES

As to why they kept his health condition behind closed doors throughout the years despite the interest of millions of fans around the world, the devoted wife said: "Private is private."

According to her, that's what her husband used to say, and she believes it to be important for Michael to be able to enjoy his privacy. As she sees it, they are protecting him the same way he protected them.

A 7-time Formula One champion, Michael is still one of the most successful and revered racers ever, only being surpassed by Lewis Hamilton, who has 99 wins against Michael's 91.
