Michael Schumacher's family has been awarded 200,000 euros in damages due to a counterfeit interview with the renowned former F1 driver.

Michael Schumacher's family has been awarded 200,000 euros in damages due to a counterfeit interview with the renowned former F1 driver.

Die Aktuelle, a weekly women's magazine, last year released what it claimed was an interview with the seven-time world champion, conducted using AI. Schumacher has not made any public appearances or given any interviews since his skiing accident in 2013.

"Finally get answers almost ten years after his tragic skiing accident," the publication sensationally claimed at the time.

The Schumacher family promptly initiated legal proceedings against the magazine's publisher, Funke Mediengruppe.

In response, Funke terminated its editor-in-chief, Ann Hoffmann, and issued an apology for the "tasteless and misleading article".

However, according to Ubermedien, a publication specializing in media legal issues, the moves were deemed insufficient by the Schumacher family.

The Munich labor court, Landesarbeitsgericht, has now ruled that Funke must compensate the Schumacher family with 200,000 euros.

Additionally, the publication noted that the ousted editor-in-chief, Hoffmann, contested her dismissal in court and succeeded, with the verdict stating that her firing was "not legally valid".
