Michael Schumacher’s son has confessed he is appreciating the ‘little things’ in life while his father is still staying out of the limelight.
The German has not been seen for almost a decade after being seriously injured in a skiing accident in 2013.
Schumacher lost his way and hit his head on a rock.
Although he was initially conscious, the F1 legend was later taken to hospital and placed in a medically induced coma.

Schumacher later returned home, with his family caring for him over the years.
However, the 54-year-old man’s condition is still unknown, and hopes for a miracle appear to be fading.
Schumacher’s son Mick says he is learning to appreciate the ‘little things’ in life.
When asked about the accident that changed the family’s life, the 24-year-old told German media: “I believe that in such cases you learn to understand certain moments differently.
“You learn to appreciate the little things.”
Mick also said that he thinks people ‘focus too much on the bad things and too little attention on the good things that still exist.’
The young player was in France at the time of his father’s accident.
And although he has attempted to emulate Schumacher by becoming an F1 star, it has proved difficult so far.
Schumacher’s brother Ralf has also discussed the falling star.
He says he misses his siblings and that life is ‘unfair sometimes’.
“I miss my Michael from that time,” Ralf told Bild.
“Life is unfair sometimes.
“Michael has often been fortunate in his life, until this tragic accident occurred.
“Despite modern medical options, nothing is like it used to be.”
He added, “Michael was not just my brother.
