DOCTORS TREATING SEVEN-TIME Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher will begin lowering his sedation level in order to start the process to wake him up, his agent said today.

Schumacher has been in an artificial coma in a hospital in the eastern French city of Grenoble for more than four weeks following an accident in late December when he slammed his head on a rock while skiing off-piste in the resort of Meribel.
