According to bookie pay per head sources, a weekly German magazine Die Aktuelle placed Schumacher on the front cover of its April 15 edition. Also, they claimed they interviewed the legendary F1 driver.

According to sports news reports, the phony interview discussed his supposed family life since the skiing accident. Also, it gave an upgrade to his medical condition.
