The racing ace turned 49 today and his devoted supporters took to social media to send their well wishes with the hashtag “#KeepFightingMichael”. 

The seven-time F1 champion has been battling for his life ever since he suffered catastrophic brain injuries four years ago after he hit his head on a rock during a skiing holiday in the French resort of Meribel in December 2013. 

His condition is currently unknown, but it is believed he is being rehabilitated at his family home in Switzerland. 

One fan wrote: “Happy birthday to Michael Schumacher, the best driver in Formula One history... #KeepFighting #ForzaMichael”
