Michael was said to be earning adjacent to USD100 million per annum in his final years with Ferrari. Hopefully his long and stellar career will mean that all will be well on that front.

A current headline is Michael Schumachers wife has sold their private jet valued at 25million. Reason being given by the press is he won't be needing it anymore! Their Holiday home in Norway has also gone and thinking of selling the chalet in France. I would say she is gathering the war chest so to speak, as Michaels care is not cheap and going to burn a considerable hole in their finances with his 24/7 full on intensive care. Even with Millions still coming in from his business affairs it will cost a fortune. :shock:
Balancing the books is that people with such devastating brain injuries usually only cling on for about five years at best so hopefully there'll be enough left in the pot for his unfortunate family to rebuild their lives once the inevitable catches up with them. Got to be realistic about such things.

Fully understand why the ski Chalet has been sold, with it being so close to the scene of the accident. Its not exactly going to bring back happy memories.

As for the jet, if I had a 25m asset sat around doing nothing but costing me money I'd sell it too. Fair play to Michaels wife Corinna for stepping up and taking control of the half billion dollar business that is Michael Schumacher. So I feel the Ski Chalet and jet sale are a mere drop in the ocean in terms of monetary value, can't see the begging bowl coming out any-time soon yet.

On the eve of the first anniversary of his great achievement at Monaco, hope fades for poor Bianchi ...

I've read that piece, and maybe I haven't read it properly, but I could not see any indications of fresh progress or any new information in it.

I think it is more a case of marking the "one year on from coming out of the coma" than anything else.

There is always a chance of a miracle, I guess.
