The "most difficult time" in Michael Schumacher's "struggle" is now over, wrote the Formula 1 legend's wife Corinna, in a brief letter of thanks in the official 2014 German GP programme.

The message, in German, said the Schumacher family had been overwhelmed by the support shown by the injured former F1 driver's supporters since his skiing fall in December 2013.
