Formula One star Michael Schumacher is showing signs of consciousness, according to his agent.
Sabine Kehm, the driver’s spokeswoman, declined to release any further details, saying he would remain at hospital in Grenoble.
She said in statement: “Michael makes progress on his path. He shows moments of consciousness and awakening.
“We ask for a new understanding about the lack of detail . This is absolutely necessary to respect the privacy of Michael and his family , and to allow the medical team to work with confidence.”
Schumacher smashed his head on a rock while skiing off-piste in the French Alps resort of Meribel on December 29.
Kehm said the statement did not mean Schumacher would soon leave Grenoble Hospital. She did however deny reports the driver’s wife is planning to build 12-million euro home clinic.
