The health news of Michael Schumacher was kept quiet by his family and his manager, following a shocking skiing accident that left the F1 star in an induced coma.
Fans of the racing legend have largely been left without information, as manager Sabine Kehm continues to insist that Michael's health is not a public matter.
Previously he said: "What can be said is that the family really appreciates the empathy of the fans.
"People really see and understand (their health situation) must not be shared in the public eye".
It is believed that the beloved driver is assisted by a team of medical experts at his home near Lake Geneva, Switzerland.
The costs of the 49-year-old's care are estimated at over £ 115,000 per week.
What did the manager of the F1 icon say in a statement?
Today a statement was released by Michael's manager, Sabine Kehm, following the presentation of a poster commemorating the record driver.
The poster celebrates the 91 races he has won in his career and shows Michael driving his 2000 Ferrari.
It was in this car that he got his first title with the Italian car manufacturer.
On behalf of the Schumacher family, Sabine Kehm said: "We are looking forward to working with ZOOM to raise funds for the Keep Fighting Foundation.
"This is a fantastic way to celebrate Michael's iconic career and among other things, a very nice poster."
Although Michael's family is silent on the subject of his health, his daughter wrote a message to her father about social media last November.
Gina-Maria, 20, wrote on Instagram: "There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved #festival".
The wife of Michael, Corrina and son Mick, have not issued any statement on the health of the star.
In October 2018 the former head of Michael at Ferrari, Jean Todt, revealed his pain over the injuries reported in the F1 legend.
He also said he visits the hit star twice a month.
Todt, 72, said: "I love Michael, I see his family, I wish the situation was different".
Michael is the most decorated Formula One driver in history, with records for wins, more wins, more wins in a season and more pole positions.
It also has the recognition of having won the most consecutive world championships and the most consecutive race.
