A report from BBC last week stated that the injured seven-time time world champion has been showing “small, encouraging signs” of recovery from his condition.
On behalf the Schumacher family, the former F1 champ’s manager Sabine Kehm released a statement to the public about his client’s status. Kehm said that Schumacher hasn’t woken up yet from his medically induced coma, however, doctors at Grenoble hospital are working hard to help improve his condition. So far, he is giving slight signs of improvements, he added.
Kehm pointed out that Schumacher’s recovery might take long and the whole process may only be gradual. But he said that he is confident that Schumacher will eventually pull it through and wake up. For now, this is the time for everyone to be patient, he reminded.
