The man who helped guide Michael Schumacher to seven Formula 1 titles says the former champion is showing “encouraging signs” in his recovery.
Former Ferrari technical head Ross Brawn recently told BBC Sport: “There are encouraging signs and we are all praying every day that we see more of them. All I would say is there is a lot of speculation about Michael’s condition, most it’s wrong and we just pray and hope every day that we continue to see some progress.”
Details on Schumacher’s conditions have been kept mostly private since he was discharged from the hospital in September 2014, after suffering a head injury while skiing in 2013 at the French Alps resort of Meribel.
Following his injury, Schumacher was first treated at a hospital in France before moving to a hospital in Switzerland, closer to the Schumacher family home. Recently, Schumacher’s lawyer told German court that the seven-time Formula 1 champion wasn’t able to walk, a detail that came out during a court case against a German publication that ran a report saying Schumacher could walk “a couple of steps.”
