Michael Schumacher Might be Slowly Woken up From His Coma

A recent report from a French sports newspaper implies that seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher could be soon entering a slow recovery phase from his artificially-induced coma.

“After four consecutive weeks of coma following his serious skiing accident of December 29, Michael Schumacher has been placed, according to our information, [in a] phase of gradual awakening. It is a slow and uncertain recovery phase in the life that begins for seven time world champion,” L'Equipe reported, quoted by GMM.

As most of you know, Schumi was critically-injured at the end of 2013, hitting his head on a rock while skiing with his family in the Alps, and has been in an doctors' induced coma ever since.

Despite the French report above, Sabine Kehm – Michael Schumacher's manager – again stressed the fact that any official comments on the state of the F1 champion's health will only be made by his doctors or by his management.

Kehm also said that the L'Equipe report should be considered as speculation by his fans, although she didn't downright deny it either.
