Positive news emerged from Grenoble on Friday, with Michael Schumacher’s manager revealing he is showing “moments of consciousness and awakening”.
The former Ferrari and Mercedes driver has been in a coma for more than three months after a skiing fall, and some reports had suggested hope was fading he would ever recover.
But Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm said on Friday the great 45-year-old German is “making progress”.
“He shows moments of consciousness and awakening,” she added in a brief media statement.
Kehm said she would not disclose “details”.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with you Michael (Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Michael).” This is the message that the organizers of the Bahrain Grand Prix have wanted to address the former pilot of Ferrari and Mercedes, at the bend that just a month ago was entitled to its German, winner of the first edition held in 2004. A sign of affection that shows how Michael Schumacher is loved by the world of Formula 1, which has definitively left at the end of 2012. (GMM/ThisisF1.com)
