Schumacher showing signs of improvement
Seven-time champion remains in hospital in Grenoble, but manager Sabine Kehm reports he is “making progress”
Michael Schumacher has shown the rst signs of real progress in his battle to recover from head injuries sustained in a skiing accident in December. His manager Sabine Kehm says he is showing “moments of consciousness” after spending more than three months in a coma.
Kehm said the 45-year-old was “making progress” and that his family “remain condent Michael will pull through and wake up”.
She added: “It was clear from the start that this will be a long and hard ght for Michael. We are taking this ght on together with the team of doctors, whom we fully trust. The length of the process is not the important part for us.
“It is heart-warming to see how much sympathy his family is shown and I can say that the family is extremely grateful for it.
“However, it should not be forgotten that Michael’s family is dealing with an extremely intimate and fragile situation. And I would like to remind all of us that Michael has always actively kept his family out of the public eye and consequently protected their private lives.”
Former F1 doctor Gary Hartstein said the news meant Schumacher’s “life expectancy has now improved very signicantly” and “opened up a very real chance of further improvement”.
