Paris: Injured Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher has been showing “small, encouraging signs” in his fight for recovery, his family says.
“We are and remain confident that Michael will pull through and will wake up,” the relatives said in a statement.
Doctors in France have been working to bring the seven-time champion out of a medically induced coma.
The 45-year-old German suffered a severe head injury in a skiing accident in the French Alps on 29 December.
He has been kept in a coma to help reduce the swelling in his brain
On Wednesday, Schumacher’s manager, Sabine Kehm, released a statement on behalf of his family because of “an increasing interest in [his] condition in light of the start of the Formula 1 season”.
The family praised the efforts of the French doctors at Grenoble hospital, but also warned that “it was clear from the start that this will be a long and hard fight for Michael.”
“We are and remain confident that Michael will pull through and will wake up.
“There sometimes are small, encouraging signs, but we also know that this is the time to be very patient,” the statement added.
Investigators probing the accident said Schumacher had been going at the speed of “a very good skier” at the time of his crash in the resort of Meribel.
