Fans have been desperate to know some update regarding Michael Schumacher's health. Although earlier reports have already suggested that the Formula One legend was showing "encouraging signs," nothing much is really said about his current condition. On top of that, reports revealed that the F1 star's family is facing another alarming problem.

Daily Star UK has previously reported that Michael Schumacher's former teammate, Johnny Herbert, shared some notes that he learned about the Formula One star's current condition. The British F1 racer didn't reveal much except for his friend having some "good days and bad days."

Michael Schumacher suffered a severe head injury on Dec. 29, 2013 as a result of an unfortunate accident at the French Alps. This heartbreaking incident was never hidden from the public as the family of the German racer believed that his fans deserved to know what happened to the F1 star. Now, the family of the 48-year-old seven-time Formula One World Champion is hoping for fans and the media to respect their privacy.

One of his close pals, Ross Brawn, shared something promising regarding the state of Michael Schumacher’s health at the time that made his fans hopeful. However, the technical director at Benetton and at Ferrari quickly took his statement back after realizing that the F1 star’s family wanted to keep this topic private.

“I was quoted as saying he's improving, and it was not what I really meant,” he explained to Autoweek. “The family are conducting his convalescence in private, and I need to respect that. So I don't want to comment on his condition beyond saying we're extremely hopeful we'll see Michael as we knew him at some point in the future."

As if the worries over Michael Schumacher's health is not enough, shocking reports revealed that German painter Huseyin B. has blackmailed Michael Schumacher, demanding him to pay £700,000 (or $912,520.00 approximately) or else he will harm his son, Mick Schumacher. The publication revealed that the shocking message was sent to the F1 star's wife, Corinna, last year on Valentine's Day.

Corinna sought help from the police and Huseyin was brought to justice. The blackmailer eventually pleaded guilty of the crime.
