“Please understand if we are following Michael’s wishes and keeping such a sensitive subject as health, as it has always been, in privacy.
“At the same time we say thank you very much for your friendship and wish you a healthy and happy year 2019.”
The family also publicised the Official Michael Schumacher App which the Keep Fighting Foundation is releasing on his birthday.
“As a gift to him, you and us, Keep Fighting Foundation has created a virtual museum,” explains the statement.
“The Official Michael Schumacher App will be released tomorrow, so that we can review all together Michael’s successes.
“The app is another milestone in our effort to do justice to him and you, his fans, by celebrating his accomplishments. We wish you a lot of fun with it.”
The Ferrari Museum will likewise open its own exhibition in Maranello to mark Schumacher’s birthday.

Schumacher continues to recover from a skiing accident in December 2013 with few official updates of his condition released.
Set to coincide with his 50th birthday, the ‘Michael 50’ exhibit opens on January 3.
#keepfightingMichael.Those closest to Schumacher, including his friend and former Ferrari boss Jean Todt, backed that stance.
When asked by La Gazzetta dello Sport to reveal whether Schumacher is cognitively able to follow a formula one race, the Frenchman replied: "Here I stop."
In Welt newspaper, Todt admitted that despite remaining close friends with Schumacher and his family including monthly visits, "we no longer have the same communication as before".
But on the specifics of Schumacher's condition, Todt told La Gazzetta dello Sport: "I don't think there's a reason to revisit this point.
"You know that he had this terrible accident five years ago, he's fighting and will continue to do so, he has a team close to him, his family, which is extraordinary," Todt added.
"The rest is private, and it is right that it remains that way."
Another close former Schumacher colleague, F1 sporting boss Ross Brawn, agrees.
"I am constantly in touch with Corinna, and I totally agree with their decision," the former Ferrari technical boss said.
"It's completely understandable that Corinna has wanted to maintain the same approach to Michael's privacy, which was a guiding principle in his career.
"Even after the tragic event, it's a decision we must all respect," Brawn added.
And Luca di Montezemolo, the former Ferrari president, said he too is "in contact with Corinna, but I share the family's decision to keep Michael's life private.
"We all have to respect his privacy," he told Il Fatto Quotidiano.
As for Schumacher's health condition, di Montezemolo told Rai radio: "I hope something (positive) can happen, but I do not want to say anything else except that Michael is fighting with so much determination and with a magnificent family around him."
Of course, the family policy gives the likes of Brawn Todt etc the easy out to the difficult and probing questions they still clearly get asked gy media hungry for a snippet of gossip. As we read from Todt with his 'Here we stop /we dont go there' reply.
