Marburg, Germany - Michael Schumacher's former manager Willi Weber has asked for an "honest" updates regarding the injured veteran's condition.

Schumacher, 47, a seven-time F1 world champion, suffered head injuries when he fell on a rock in a skiing accident in Meribel, France on December 29, 2013.

He spent months in an induced coma before being moved from hospital to a rehabilitation clinic in June 2014.

'Honest message'

Weber told Express.co.uk that he believes the injured F1 champion's fans would be more at ease if they were given an "honest message" about the state of his health.

Weber adds that information from the family could also  help those who worked with Schumacher cope with the tragic situation.

It's not the first time Weber has critisised the Schumacher family, in 2015, Weber wrote on his Facebook page that Schumacher's wife Corinna would not allow him to visit  the stricken F1 legend in the wake of his 2013 skiing crash.

Schumi exhibition

An exhibition on the motorsport career of Michael Schumacher opened in Germany in February 2016.

Around 200 guests including Schumacher's wife, Corinna, and their two children attended the opening of the exhibition in Marburg in the state of Hesse on Monday.

'He will one day be back again'

Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm told guests: "Of course, we miss Michael on days like these. Unfortunately we cannot change what has happened."

Kehm said that all that could be done was to hope and provide support "that he will one day be back again."

The exhibition by a long-standing sponsor of the former champion features racing cars from Schumacher's career as well as exhibits from his private ownership. It is due to run for two years.
