It is more than three years since Michael Schumacher’s life-changing skiing accident.
His medical status still remains unclear, having suffered serious head injuries in a freak accident on December 29, 201.
The 48-year-old continues to receive specialist treatment at his home in Switzerland.
His manager Sabine Kehm said in a statement in December: “Michael’s health is not a public issue, and so we will continue to make no comment in that regard.”
Michael Schumacher made his F1 debut at Spa in 1991 and won his first race at the Belgian track a year later.
He went on to score a record 91 grands prix victories in a glittering 21-year career.
