Schumacher’s manager says ‘comatose’ F1 legend showing ‘moments of consciousness’

Melbourne, Apr 5: The manager of Michael Schumacher has said that the Formula One legend is now showing ‘moments of consciousness and awakening’ more than three months after suffering serious head injuries in a skiing accident.

According to, manager Sabine Kehm said in a statement that ‘Schumacher is making progress on his way, adding that they are confident of him making a recovery’.

Kehm further stated that Schumacher’s family does not intend to disclose further details.
