MICHAEL SCHUMACHER AWAKES FROM COMA

Michael Schumacher is no longer in a coma and has been transferred from the hospital in Grenoble, France, where he has been since his skiing accident last year to a recovery ward at the University Hospital in Lausanne, Switzerland.

“Michael has left…to continue his long phase of rehabilitation,” according to his manager Sabine Kehm.

As in previous statements, Schumacher’s agent asked for the media and fans to respect the privacy of Schumacher and his family as they continue forward with his recovery.

“The family also wishes to thank all the people who have sent Michael all the many good wishes,” Kehm said. “We are sure it helped him. For the future we ask for understanding that his further rehabilitation will take place away from the public eye.”

The seven-time Formula One world champion is an avid and experienced skier who suffered severe head trauma as a result of a skiing accident at the French Alps resort of Meribel on December 29. Investigators believe that Schumacher struck a rock that was hidden below the snow while traversing an area between two pistes, which catapulted him face first into another rock.

In early January, a French prosecutor tasked with investigating the accident concluded that speed was not a reason for Schumacher’s fall.

The 1998 Ferrari F300 driven by Michael Schumacher recently went across the auction block at Barret-Jackson for $1.7 million. This particular example is number three of nine built for the 1998 season. The F300 is a 3.0-liter V10 engine responsible for producing 805 horsepower at 17,500 rpm. The car was used by Schumacher for 38 races throughout the 1998 campaign that was won by Mika Hakkinen.

“Accompanied by its Classic certificate and Ferrari documents showing the car was driven by Michael Schumacher 38 times, this car has been fully restored by Ferrari and is eligible for a number of historic events,” read a press release from Barret-Jackson.

“As an actual verified Ferrari that has been piloted by seven-time World Champion Michael Schumacher. We believe the 1998 F300 Chassis 183 was an integral part in re-establishing Scuderia Ferrari’s dominance in Formula 1 racing.”

Schumacher currently remains in a medically induced coma after suffering severe head trauma during a skiing incident late last year while on vacation in the Alpine resort of Meribel.
