The Formula One legend was left with devastating brain injuries following his ski accident in Meribel in December 2013 with recent reports confirming that there has been little progress in his recovery.
Now, reluctantly, Corinna has reportedly sold his private jet for £25m, conceding that he would never be able to fly it again.
Corinna, who now looks after his half-a-billion pound wealth, also sold off their holiday home in Norway earlier this year after coming to terms with the fact that he will likely never be able to vacation there again, according to German magazine Bunte.

Bunte reported: "When it became clear that the old Schumi perhaps never would return, Corinna had to accept her new life. She had to act.
"She took over the job, and the power, of her husband as an act of succession.
“Corinna underwent a remarkable transformation - from his wife to the clan chief, a lady who trained as a sales clerk to the manager of a multi-millions company."
The 47-year-old former F1 driver resides in his mansion in Switzerland which has been specially adapted for him with a team of doctors, nurses and technicians working full-time in the home.
