Cape Town - December 2017 will mark four years since legendary Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher suffered a skiing accident that left him in a coma since 2013.

Schumacher's family has requested that his condition remains private. Sabine Kehm, who is the seven-time world champion's manager said the policy of "radio silence" with regards to Schumacher's condition will continue.

This hasn't stopped fans and fellow F1 drivers from asking - What is Schumacher's current condition?

Following his back-to-back win in Monza this past weekend, Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton said he would like to know the current physical condition of Schumacher.
