LEGENDARY F1 driver Michael Schumacher is slowly waking up from his coma according to his son.
The 45-year-old seven time world champion suffered serious brain injuries in a ski-ing accident in French resort Meribel in December 2013.
Since then he has been hospitalised and then cared for in a specially built medical suite at his Swiss mansion and his progress has been agonisingly slow.
Speaking to commentator Jean-Louis Moncet Mick Schumacher said that it was not the ‘hit’ he took when he fell and struck a rock that caused the damage, but rather the mounting of a camera on his helmet.
Moncet told Europe 1 radio station: “I saw his son and he told me that Schumi is waking up very slowly; very slowly.
He added: ” Although things are going at a slow pace, he has a lot of time, I would say he has his whole life in front of him to get back on track.’
Last month Schumacher’s former boss at Ferrari, Jean Todt, visited him, and afterwards said: “‘What’s important is that he lives and that his family is with him. We really believe that things will get better. He needs time and to be left alone.”
