Michael Schumacher waking up very slowly, claims son

Published Add your comment

Michael Schumacher is ‘waking up very slowly’, according to a French F1 commentator who has spoken to his son.

The Ferrari legend suffered severe head and brain injuries in a freak skiing accident back in December, and there were serious concerns over whether the 45-year-old would ever recover.

However, positive news has come in the shape of kart-racing driver Mick, who admits that whilst the recovery is taking its time, it is happening.

"I saw his son and he told me that Schumi is waking up very slowly; very slowly,” Jean-Louis Moncet told Europe 1 radio station.

Whole life ahead

"Although things are going at a slow pace, he has a lot of time, I would say he has his whole life in front of him to get back on track.”

Moncet also made a new revelation with regards to how Schumacher suffered his injury, claiming that a Go-Pro camera was to blame for the severe brain injury which the German suffered.

"The problem for Michael was not the hit, but the mounting of the Go-Pro camera that he had on his helmet that injured his brain,” he added.

Expensive care

Schumacher was transferred back to his Swiss mansion from hospital two months ago, and is being cared for by 15 experts at a cost of £150,000 a month.

He was in a medically-induced coma, and he is still thought to be immobile and unable to speak.
