Seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher is still in the process of waking up from an induced coma following a skiing accident more than six weeks ago, his manager said Thursday.
German has undergone two operations since sustaining brain injuries after slamming his head on a rock while skiing off-piste in the French Alps resort of Meribel on December 29
“As often in such situations no day is like the next. The family is thankful for one’s understanding that they would not wish to disclose medical details in order to protect Michael’s privacy,” Schumacher’s agent Sabine Kehm said in a statement.
“As assured from the beginning, we will continue to communicate any decisive new information on Michael’s health state. We are aware that the wake-up phase can take a long time.
“The family continues to strongly believe in Michael’s recovery and place all their trust in the doctors … The important thing is not the speed of the recovery but that Michael’s healing process progresses in a continuous and controlled way.”
