MICHAEL Schumacher's wife Corinna tearfully she revealed he is "different" since his head injury and she "misses him every day".

She gave an emotional interview for new Netflix documentary Schumacher in which she recalls the F1 legend's horror skiing accident and details of their home life in the eight years since.

Corinna, 52, says in the film: "I have never blamed God for what happened. It was just really bad luck – all the bad luck anyone can have in life.

"It's always terrible when you say, 'Why is this happening to Michael or us?' But then why does it happen to other people?"

Fighting back tears, Corinna continues: "Of course, I miss Michael every day. But it's not just me who misses him.

"It's the children, the family, his father, everyone around him.

"I mean, everybody misses Michael, but Michael is here. Different, but he's here and that gives us strength, I find."

In another moving clip she says: "I think that he is simply very strong mentally. Extremely strong.

"He still shows me how strong he is every day."

Discussing their family life, Corinna added: "We’re together. We live together at home. We do therapy. We do everything we can to make Michael better and to make him comfortable.

"And to simply make him feel our family, our bond. 

"And no matter what, I will do everything I can. We all will."

And she adds: "We try to carry on a family as Michael liked it and still does. And we are getting on with our lives.

“'Private is private', as he always said. It is very important to me that he can continue to enjoy his private life as much as possible.

Michael always protected us, and now we are protecting Michael

"Michael always protected us, and now we are protecting Michael."

Seven-times F1 champ Shuey suffered a near-fatal head injury in a skiing accident in the French Alps on December 29, 2013.

Updates on his health have been rare in the years since, but the family has reportedly spent £20million on round-the-clock care at their homes in Switzerland and Majorca.

Jean Todt, a close pal and his former boss at Ferrari, said this week he will "slowly and surely improve" offering hope for his millions of fans.

In a 2019 update, Schumacher was reported to be making "good progress" but also "struggling to communicate".

The Netflix documentary features family home video and interviews with Schuey's father and grown-up kids Gina-Maria and Mick.

Racing driver Mick, now in his debut season in F1 with the Haas team, tells of his sadness at not being able talk about it with his dad.

He says: “Since the accident these [family] experiences, these moments that I believe many people have with their parents are no longer present, or to a lesser extent, and in my view that is a little unfair.

“I think dad and me, we would understand each other in a different way now simply because we speak a similar language, the language of motorsport, and that we would have much more to talk about.

“And that’s where my head is most of the time, thinking that would be so cool. I would give up everything just for that.”
