Ross Brawn is remaining hopeful that Michael Schumacher will be seen “as we knew him”, and will make a full recovery from his tragic accident that happened a few years ago.

Schumacher was left in a coma three years ago after a tragic skiing accident, which saw him suffer a serious head injury following a nasty fall.

The Formula One legend’s recovery has been slow, but Brawn and the Schumacher family are remaining positive.

Brawn, who was Ferrari team principal during Schumacher’s glory years, told the Guardian: "We’ll go see him and hope and pray that one day he will make a recovery.

“I was quoted as saying he’s improving that it was not what I really meant.”

Since the accident, news on Schumacher’s progress has been limited.

“The family are conducting his convalescence in private and I need to respect that.

“So I don’t want to comment on his condition beyond saying we’re extremely hopeful we’ll see Michael as we knew him at some point in the future.”

Those sentiments will be shared across the globe for this iconic sportsman.

The 47-year-old is certainly a sporting legend, as well as a Formula One legend.

During his illustrious career, the German race won seven Driver's Championships, including five in a row from 2000 to 2004.

Prior to 2000, he had won two Driver's Championships, in 1994 and 1995 respectively.

As well as numerous titles, Schumacher also holds numerous records in the sports, and over his career, mustered up an incredible 91 wins and 155 podium finishes.

Throughout his entire career, the Ferrari legend obtained 1,566 points, and managed to finish on pole a whopping 68 times.

Get well soon Michael.
