Michael Schumacher’s team have shared a sweet photo of the German in his 90s as he recovers from a skiing accident a decade ago.

The German is considered one of the best F1 drivers of all time, having won seven titles during his career.

However, over the past two days, Schumacher’s team has shared some old photos on Instagram.

An image published on Sunday shows the 54-year-old celebrating after victory at Suzuka in 2000.

And his camp has now shared another image of the German, this time from the 90s.

“No filter needed for this 90s yearbook,” the former F1 driver wrote while posing for the camera.

Many of Schumacher’s fans were quick to comment, with one user saying: “Missing you Michael cause we haven’t heard from you in a long time.”

“Michael is great!” Said another.

And a third fan said: “We miss you Michael. The only one.”

Schumacher has been away from the limelight for the last decade.

The Ferrari legend was tragically involved in a skiing accident in 2013 when he lost his way and hit his head on a rock.

Schumacher was wearing a helmet at the time and would have died at the scene had he not been wearing protective gear.

He was placed in a medically induced coma and underwent multiple surgeries to treat his injuries.

Although doctors were successful in sparing Schumacher, no images of the F1 hero have been shared in the years since.

Apparently, his family prefers to keep his situation ‘private’.

This was explained by wife Corinna in 2021, with the German saying in a Netflix documentary: “I miss Michael every day.

“But it’s not just me who misses him.

“It’s the kids, the family, his dad, everyone around him.

“Everyone misses Michael, but Michael is here – different, but here. He still shows me every day how strong he is.”

He added, “We’re trying to move forward as a family, the way Michael liked it and still does.

“We stay together at home. We do therapy. We do everything we can to make Michael better and make sure he’s comfortable.

“We are moving on with our lives: ‘Personal is personal’ as they always said.

“It is very important for me that he can continue to enjoy his private life as much as possible.

“Michael always protected us, now we’re protecting Michael.”

Meanwhile, close friend Roger Benoit provided a rare update on Schumacher last month.

And he said his old friend was ‘a case without hope’.

When asked if he was able to provide an update on Schumacher and his condition, Blick said, “No.” “There’s only one answer to that question and it’s the one his son Mick gave in one of his rare interviews in 2022: ‘I’d do anything to talk to dad.’

“This sentence tells everything about what his father has been going through for more than 3500 days. A case without hope.”

Benoit was referring to comments made by Schumacher’s son Mick.

Last year, the 24-year-old said: “I think dad and I will understand each other differently now.

“We would have so much more to talk about and most of the time my mind would be thinking how great it would be. I would drop everything for this.”
