Michael Schumacher continues to show “small signs of progress” as he continues his recovery from major head injuries, according to the latest update from his manager, Sabine Kehm.

Doctors treating the seven-time World Champion at Grenoble’s University Hospital are continuing with their attempts to bring him out of the medically induced coma he was placed in after his skiing accident on the French Alps on December 29.

“There are short moments of consciousness and he is showing small signs of progress,” Kehm said in an interview with the German-language broadcaster, ARD.

“There are moments when he is awake and moments when he is conscious.

“I am not a doctor, but medically, there is a distinction between being awake and being conscious, the latter meaning there is an ability to interact with his surroundings,” she added.

“I don’t want to disclose details out of respect for the family, but we have no doubt at all in the abilities of the doctors treating Michael, they are experts in their field.”

Kehm continued to stress that “a medical prognosis is not possible” given the nature of the German’s injuries.
