By host - gareth-griffin
Stricken Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher just turned 50 and his family have marked the occasion with a rare update on his health.

The seven-time world champion fell and hit his head in a skiing accident five years ago and spent six months in a coma. Since then he has been cared for at his home near Lake Geneva in Switzerland. In the statement, his family said: “You can be sure that he is in the very best of hands and that we are doing everything humanly possible to help him. Please understand if we are following Michael’s wishes and keeping such a sensitive subject as [his] health... in privacy.

How concerned are you about news about Michael Schumacher? Do you think he'll still go back to his normal self?

If he ever wakes up, he will be alive but he will never be able to talk or walk again.

I really hope he does make a full recovery. However, I am pessimistic because it’s been five years so surely by now he would be better.

As seen with countless other individuals who have suffered similar head injuries, the recovery process varies widely and follows its own unpredictable evolutionary course over multiple years and decades of time.

With full respect to the family's wishes for maintaining his personal privacy, an official clinical report is not required to surmise by now that Michael Schumacher will most likely never fully recover total brain and cognitive function, let alone return to normal health as he was prior to the accident.

The speculation over Mr Schumacher's condition should have stopped a very long time ago, as the effects of suffering a subdural hematoma head injury would also very likely affect other areas of the brain and cognitive function that would almost surely result in permanent disability of varying forms and severity.

Metaphorically speaking, the"old" Michael Schumacher passed away on December 29, 2013, and the"current" Michael Schumacher is most likely a considerably different individual.

It would be most appropriate to simply remember how accomplished he was at his chosen sport, and to wish him and his family well moving forward in observance of his 50th birthday.
