Michael Schumacher is showing “moments of consciousness” after months in a coma, his agent Sabine Kehm has said.
Sabine Kehm said in a statement to the media that he was “making progress”, adding that they remain “confident”.
Doctors in France have been working to bring the seven-time F1 champion out of a medically induced coma.
Michael Schumacher, 45, suffered a severe head injury in a skiing accident in the French Alps on December 29.
“We are on his side during his long and difficult fight, together with the team of the hospital in Grenoble,” Sabine Kehm said in the statement.
“We would like to thank you all for the continuous sympathies. At the same time we again ask for understanding that we do not intend to disclose details.”
Last month Michael Schumacher’s relatives said in a statement that he had been showing “small, encouraging signs”.
