Ahead of the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix, we've found this classic clip of seven-time F1 champion, Michael Schumacher, driving his Benetton B194. The car is stuck in fifth gear, but that doesn't seem to halt his progress.

London - Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher's manager says there is no change for now in the decision to keep the seven-time F1 champion's recovery from brain injuries completely private.

Sabine Kehm and the Schumacher family have been criticised by some for refusing to publicly update fans about the mysterious state of his health, after he struck his head on rocks whilst skiing in 2013.

Keeping mum 

"We all know that I cannot comment," manager Kehm, who also now handles the burgeoning racing career of Schumacher's 17-year-old son Mick, said this week.

She was speaking at an event to launch a forthcoming F1 drivers' charity football match in July ahead of the German grand prix, in which Schumacher is to be honoured.

Kehm is quoted by Kolner Express newspaper: "We just have to accept that the family wants to continue to protect their privacy." 

"Of course, Michael will not disappear but at the moment the private situation is so difficult that unfortunately no insight can be given. There must be understanding for this."

Earlier in June International publications released alarming news about the health of Schumacher, saying he needs"a miracle to stay alive".
