MICHAEL SCHUMACHER HAS “moments of consciousness and awakening”, his spokeswoman said today, in a sign of progress months after the Formula One legend suffered a devastating ski accident in France.

“Michael is making progress…. He shows moments of consciousness and awakening,” Sabine Kehm said in a statement.

Doctors put Schumacher in a medically induced coma after the December 29 accident in which he hit his head on a rock while skiing at the French resort of Meribel with his son and a group of friends.

He remains in hospital in the French Alpine city of Grenoble and little has filtered out about his condition, though his family said on January 30 that drugs used to keep him in a coma were being reduced with a view to bringing him back to consciousness.

“We are on his side during his long and difficult fight, together with the team of the hospital in Grenoble, and we keep remaining confident,” Kehm said.
