The 53-year-old has disappeared from public view since fighting for his life after a horrific skiing accident.

He was airlifted from the ski slope above Méribel in the French Alps after hitting his head on a rock while skiing with his son Mick.

Over the years, Schumacher has built an impressive collection of cars, including iconic brands and those that have made him famous.

Inside is the Jordan 191 in which he made his debut at the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa.

In fact, the 22-year-old rookie had only driven an F1 car for the first time a few days before the race.

He qualified eighth fastest but his race only lasted a few hundred meters after his clutch grabbed, although he returned a year later to claim his maiden F1 win.

Schumacher is perhaps best associated with Ferrari and his collection naturally includes three of the cars he has driven.

But also a black Ferrari FXX, a high-performance track development prototype built by the Italian automaker.

The 30th – and final – grooming was presented to Schumacher when he retired from Formula One racing in late 2006, as a token of recognition for his monumental achievements.

Schumacher also has Ferrari Enzo, 430 Scuderia and Ferrari California in the collection.

Other cars he owns include a Formula Ford racer he drove in 1988, a striking Mercedes SLS AMG with gullwing doors and a Sauber Mercedes-C291.

Schumacher is one of the greatest F1 drivers of all time, dominating the sport in the early 2000s after coming to power in the ’90s.

He raced from 1991 to 2006 and again from 2010 to 2012 – the second act of his career in which he was instrumental in building Lewis Hamilton’s dominant Mercedes team.

The German won five world championships with Ferrari and two with Benetton.

Schumacher fell and hit his head while crossing an off-piste area – he sustained a serious head injury despite wearing a ski helmet during the 2013 accident, which was just a year after his retirement.

Medics fought to save his life and he was placed in a medically induced coma to relieve the pressure on his brain.

He remained in a medically induced coma for almost six months after the accident.

In June 2014, he was released from hospital to be treated at his childhood home near Lake Geneva, Switzerland.

Little information has been released since then, with reports that Schumacher remains in a wheelchair and is able to react to things around him.

His health remains a mystery and his wife Corinna has a firm grip on the details of his condition.

She broke down in tears during an emotional ceremony recently when the F1 legend was honored with an award.

In a Netflix documentary, Corinna revealed “I miss Michael every day.”

Though she admitted he was “different,” she insisted that “he’s here and that gives us strength.”

Corinna also gave a brief glimpse into her life at home, saying: “We are together. We live together at home. We do therapy.”

In 2019, it was reported that Schumacher was set to undergo groundbreaking stem cell therapy to regenerate and rebuild his nervous system.

Schumacher is reported to have been receiving up to £115,000-a-week medical coverage as his family, friends and cronies all hope he can recover from his horror skiing accident.
