Michael Schumacher’s wife has lived ‘like a prisoner’, shunning lunches and parties, to keep his condition secret, according to Eddie Jordan.
Schumacher suffered a skiing accident in December 2013 and was placed into a medically induced coma. He was later moved to the family’s Lake Geneva home in September 2014 where a team of medical staff now support his wife Corinna in looking after him.
Jordan, who is loosely connected to the Ferrari icon, revealed last year that his plans to visit the seven-time Formula One world champion were veteoed by Schumacher’s family.
‘This was the most horrific situation for Mick and Corinna,’ Jordan told The Sun.
‘It’s been nearly ten years now and Corinna has not been able to go to a party, to lunch or this or that, she’s like a prisoner because everyone would want to talk to her about Michael when she doesn’t need reminding of it every minute.’

Schumacher once described his wife as his ‘guardian angel’ and she has taken total control of blocking out any noise around his condition.
Jordan gave Schumacher his break in F1 in 1991 with Jordan Grand Prix but has not been granted a visit, with access to the former Ferrari star ring-fenced by his wife.
Former-FIA president Jean Todt revealed in May 2021 that he makes two visits a month to see Schumacher.
In a rare discussion on Schumacher, Todt claimed the German is ‘in the best hands’ with the medical team he has working at his home.
