Schumacher suffered head injuries during a skiing accident last year in December and was airlifted to Grenoble University Hospital Center in France where he underwent months of treatment. Last month, doctors there finally pulled him out of a medically-induced coma when he was sent to Lausanne University Hospital near his home in Switzerland.

“I have to say your sympathies blew us all away. Good to know that together we made it through the hardest time,” she wrote. “Now we are facing a phase which will presumably take a long time. We trust that—as for so many years in F1—time will be Michael’s ally in the fight.”
