Eddie Jordan divulges Corina Schumacher’s struggles to protect her husband.

Eddie Jordan, the former owner of the Jordan F1 team, has disclosed that he was not allowed to visit Michael Schumacher after his skiing accident, which left him with severe brain injuries.

The accident occurred in Grenoble in December 2013, and Schumacher was put into a medically induced coma. He received further medical attention in Switzerland before going back to his family’s residence in September 2014.

For the past eight and a half years, Michael Schumacher has been under the care of his wife Corrina.

The Schumacher family has been discreet in sharing updates on the health of the F1 legend, with both his wife and son Mick Schumacher opting to maintain a level of privacy.

This has been done with the aim of preserving his dignity. Jordan, who was responsible for Schumacher’s F1 debut in 1991 when he was the team boss of the Jordan Grand Prix, has expressed admiration for the family’s approach.

In an interview with The Sun, he said: “This was the most horrific situation for Mick and Corinna.”

“It’s been nearly 10 years now and Corinna has not been able to go to a party, to lunch or this or that, she’s like a prisoner because everyone would want to talk to her about Michael when she doesn’t need reminding of it every minute.”

The 74-year-old went on to commend Corinna for her resilience during her spouse’s health struggles. She has implemented stringent guidelines on who can see him, even declining visits from people like Jordan, a long-time friend, which he respected in the past.

“Privacy is such a vital aspect to sport, business and your personal life,” Jordan said.

“Corinna has set out some rules, I know her very well and a long time before Michael Schumacher.

“She’s a lovely girl and I knew her when she married Michael so there is a long history of good relations.

“I made an effort to go see Michael in the early days and Corinna refused, and rightfully so because too many people wanted to go see him.

“Jean Todt was given the privilege to go see him because of how close they were from their time together at Ferrari which is completely understandable.

“I was not able to go see Michael and they said: ‘we love you Eddie and we’ve been involved with you for a very long time, but we do need privacy and safeguard of Michael’.”
