Michael Schumacher's wife Corinna is reportedly building a £10million medical suite in their home for when her husband leaves hospital.

According to the Daily Mail, the 45-year-old is using the family's £500 million fortune to build the suite at their £25 million home by Lake Geneva in Switzerland.

Doctors have said it is highly unlikely the Formula One star will ever wake up from his medically induced coma.

A friend of the family for 25 years told The Sun: "Miracles happen, of course, and as a wealthy man he has the best care money can buy.

"But all the money in the world cannot fix what has happened to him. The family are making arrangements for a future of permanent immobility.

"Is there a sense of denial at play among them? I would say yes"

Earlier this week, the former chief doctor of Formula One warned that fans of Michael Schumacher should prepare for "really bad news" following his ski accident, which was three months ago today.

The 45-year-old racing driver has been in an artificial coma since 29 December after suffering serious brain injuries in a crash at a French ski resort.

Former F1 doctor Gary Harstein wrote on his blog: "As time goes on it becomes less and less likely that Michael will emerge to any significant extent.

"I spent years at circuits drenched in red by the Ferrari caps, flags, and shirts, and all of that for Michael. I'm still staggered by the depth and persistence of his fans' love for him.

"And whereas I worried more than a bit about what was going to happen when and if really bad news got announced, I've realised that perhaps the lack of status updates has given us all a chance to move on a bit, to process what's happening, and to start to... detach."
