A manager for Michael Schumacher has revealed some good news today about the condition of the injured Formula One legend, saying in a statement that Schumacher has started showing some moments of consciousness.

"Michael is making progress on his way," Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm said in the statement. "He shows moments of consciousness and awakening."

Kehm added that Schumacher's family remain confident but are hesitant to disclose further details due to privacy and to ensure the medical team can work in full calmness.

The latest statement is the second morsel of positive news to emerge since Schumacher’s tragic skiing accident at a French resort on December 29, 2013, where the winner of seven F1 titles sustained serious injury to the right side of his head after falling and hitting a rock. Last month, Schumacher’s family released a statement saying they saw “small, encouraging signs.”

Schumacher, 45, is being treated at Grenoble University Hospital Center in France where he was put in an induced coma soon after his fall and had surgery performed to treat haemorrhaging in his brain caused by the impact of his head on the rock. Some of the clots were inoperable because they were too deeply embedded in his brain tissue.

Doctors started the waking process in late January, a process that they say can take a long time and is ongoing at present.
