While the Formula One driver remains in a critical condition it has been revealed Schumacher made the will because “of the things that can happen in everyday life.”

The eerily prophetic statement was made in an interview with a German magazine in 2010, with Schumacher currently in an artificial coma following his skiing accident on December 29th.

Schumacher made a will to distribute his €900 million cash, cars and property empire among his wife and two children just three years before the ski accident which has left him fighting for his life.

Back in 2010 he admitted that he made a will for the first time, telling a German magazine: “Yes, I have made my testament because I am a family man. 

“But it is less about Formula One but because of the things that can happen in everyday life.”

Schumacher’s manager has confirmed that there has been no change in his condition and remains closely monitored. Meanwhile French prosecutors have confirmed they will hold a press conference on the accident investigation this Wednesday.

Grenoble hospital also released a short statement today confirming Schumacher's condition remains the same.

"The clinical state of Michael Schumacher is stable as he's under permanent care and treatment," the statement said.

"However, the medical team in charge stresses that it continues to assess his situation as critical."

The retired seven-times Formula One world champion slammed his head on a rock while skiing off-piste on Dec. 27.
