It's been five years since Germany's Michael Schumacher suffered a devastating ski accident in France

He retired from racing in 2012 but hasn't been seen in public since December 2013 when he suffered severe head injuries after hitting a rock on the French slopes.

"We are looking forward to it and would like to thank all of you for celebrating your Michael's 50th birthday tomorrow with him and with us", it reads.

The former driver's wife, Corinna, shared a message to her husband's fans to explain that the family are continuing to help him recover: "You can be sure that he is in good hands and we are doing everything possible to help him". "Please understand if we are following Michael's wishes and keeping such a sensitive subject as health, as it has always been, in privacy".

In April 2014, he woke up and was taken from the hospital in Grenoble to a private location, believed to be his house near Lake Geneva, where he is being cared for.

The display, which runs in association with the Keep Fighting Foundation - of which Brawn and FIA president Jean Todt are both trustees - will honour Schumacher's remarkable success with the Italian team.

Earlier in the statement, she thanked fans "from the bottom of our hearts" and announced the launch, tomorrow, of the Official Michael Schumacher App.

She also confirmed they will be celebrating Schumacher's his 50th birthday by looking at old victories, records and jubilations.

'The app is another milestone in our effort to do justice to him and you, his fans, by celebrating his accomplishments, ' the family said.

"I am constantly in touch with [Schumacher's wife] Corinna and I totally agree with their decision", said Brawn.

The exhibition will allow the public to discover the contribution that Schumacher - who won five of his seven drivers titles with Ferrari - made to the car's development as a driver and later as a consultant.

Schumacher's landmark birthday is to be marked by Ferrari - who won six constructors titles whilst he was with them from 1996-2006 - with a special exhibition titled The "Michael 50".

"Lewis is certainly capable of matching and surpassing Michael's other records", added Brawn, now acting as the head of motorsport for F1.

"Michael treated his driving career as though it was a mission to which he dedicated himself completely from the first to the last day".
