For a little over six months, Michael Schumacher had been put in a medically induced coma.

This was due to some head injuries he had suffered after a fatal skiing accident in December, 2013. In June 2014, he was transferred to his private suite in Geneva and not much has been heard about his health progress since then. In recent times, several reports concerning his health condition has varied but word from Ross Brawn, former F1 team principal suggests that there is hope.

Brawn, in an interview with The Guardian recently, had said that they were “extremely hopeful” towards a positive progress in his health condition.

“We go see him and hope and pray that one day he will make a recovery,” Brawn said.

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

The family of the world-class Formula One (F1) racing champion had requested for privacy and in October, had sued a German publication for reporting untrue news about the health condition of Schumacher.

Then, the report from the German publication had claimed that the racing champion can now walk without being assisted but confirmation from the family had it that the news was quite reckless and fake.

The representative of the racer, Sabine Kehm had said that it was imperative that things remained private for Michael considering how serious his injuries were.

Brawn is still in shock given Michael’s condition, despite staying hopeful as he had known the racer to be someone of strength and character.
