Michael Schumacher moving to Spain

Wednesday, 15 august 2018, 09:17 , by Matthew Scott

Michael Schumacher will move with his family to a new house on the Spanish island of Majorca, it has been revealed. The record-breaking Formula 1 icon is set to move to a mansion in the exclusive town of Andratx, which has an estimated population of just 11,000.

Schumacher's wife Corinna purchased the property for an estimated €30million earlier this year.

The mansion had previously belonged to the president of Real Madrid, Florentino Perez, and comes set in an estate measuring 161,000 square feet.

It brings fresh interest into the condition of seven-time F1 champion Schumacher, who has not been seen publicly since suffering serious injuries in a skiing accident in 2013.

Schumacher was placed into a coma for six months and has been recovering at his home in Switzerland since September 2014.

However, it now appears that he is fit enough to make the journey to Spain.

"I can officially confirm that Michael Schumacher will come to settle in our community and that everything is set up here to welcome him," Andratx mayor, Katia Rouarch, told L'illustre.

According to the Swiss publication, local authorities are prepared for the arrival of Schumacher, a record-breaking winner of 91 grands prix in the most decorated career in F1 history.

It is unclear whether the Spanish mansion will become the permanent residence for Schuamcher, who will turn 50 in January.

    Only official statements about Michael come from his close family so if this is true he had no right to divulge it.
