Michael Schumacher now living permanently in Spain, says Flavio Briatore's ex-wife
27 September 2020 @ 10:20

HISTORIC Formula 1 great Michael Schumacher is now living permanently in Spain, according to the ex-wife of his old team manager.

Elisabeta Gregoraci, who used to be married to Flavio Briatore – Schumacher's boss during his Benetton Rénault days – says her former husband is one of just three people, other than medics or carers, who are allowed to visit the seven-times world champion racing driver.

Following his devastating off-piste skiing accident at the end of 2013, Michael Schumacher's condition has remained a mystery to his fans, and even most of his closest friends, since his wife Corinna closed ranks completely and has refused to give any information.

Serious head injuries left Schumacher, now 51, with irreversible brain damage and in an induced coma for some weeks – and a renowned neurologist has recently said he may be in a persistent vegetative state (PVS).

Although conscious, and able to sit up with help, it is not clear whether Schumacher is able to process information.

Elisabeta says: “He can't speak; he only communicates with his eyes.”

The ex-model spoke about the German motorsport legend during her recent spell on the Italian version of Big Brother, and confirmed that she knew through Briatore that the Schumacher family was now permanently based in Spain.

Having holidayed there frequently in happier times, Michael and Corinna are now reportedly living on the island of Mallorca, after the latter spent months arranging major renovations on the huge villa she had bought there in order to adapt it for her severely-disabled husband.
