Two years after his accident, Schumacher still can't walk.
Michael Schumacher's medical progress has been slow but consistently positive over the past several months, and more seemingly good news has arrived in a statement from his manager. The seven-time Formula 1 champion is leaving the hospital in Lausanne, Switzerland, to continue undergoing rehab at his home near Lake Geneva, according to the BBC News.
There's always that person who has to spoil a good thing. We all celebrated when Michael Schumacher emerged from his months-long coma following his skiing accident in late December. As one of the greatest drivers in Formula One history, no one wanted to see Schumi live out the rest of his days in a French hospital bed. The good feelings couldn't last for long, though, because it was discovered that the seven-time champion's medical records had allegedly been stolen and were being offered for sal
Look, at this point, if you hear anything about Michael Schumacher's condition, just keep a large grain of salt ready. As reports of the seven-time Formula One World Champion's condition continues to swirl following his December 29 skiing accident, it seems like each day opens with news of the German's improvement, only to close with a contradicting report.
"Michael is making progress on his way. He shows moments of consciousness and awakening. We are on his side during his long and difficult fight, together with the team of the hospital in Grenoble, and we remain confident. "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. This is necessary to protect the privacy of Michael and his family, and to enable the medical team to work in full calmness
It's been a running theme throughout Formula One driver Michael Schumacher's recovery from a tragic skiing accident - if word doesn't come from the German's family, management or medical teams, it should not be taken as fact. Germany's Focus magazine and a few other outlets are learning just such a lesson after claiming that doctors at Grenoble University Hospital had abandoned the process of waking the seven-time World Champion from the coma that's gripped him since a skiing accident on Decembe
As he has with so many race tracks over the years, Michael Schumacher has bested pneumonia. The potentially deadly lung infection which we reported on yesterday was, according to German paper Bild and the UK's The Daily Mail, actually part of an earlier complication in the seven-time World Champion's recovery, and it has already been treated. According to the paper, the complications and pneumonia "no longer spell an acute danger," which is the best Schumacher-related news we've heard in some ti
News about seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher continues to worsen as he is now being treated for pneumonia. The doctors discovered the infection last week and have administered him with an antibiotics regimen in hopes to mitigate the life-threatening illness. The discovery came at an especially bad time in Schumacher's recovery because doctors have taken him off of the drugs that kept him in an artificial coma since the December skiing accident.
Spoiler Alert: In Ron Howard's Formula One epic Rush, the recent feature film which depicted the classic, season-long battle between Chris Hemsworth's James Hunt and Daniel Brühl's Niki Lauda, a press conference is held when Lauda returns from the fiery, near-fatal crash at the Nürburgring that left him permanently disfigured.
It is perhaps now the most crucial time in Michael Schumacher's recovery. The seven-time Formula One World Champion, who was injured in a skiing accident at the end of December and has been kept in a medically induced coma, is reportedly going to have his sedation reduced in an attempt to begin "the waking up process."
Michael Schumacher has been in a medically induced coma since hitting his head while skiing on December 29, and his condition is not improving. Reports from Mirror in the UK have doctors saying that each day in the coma puts Schumacher in danger of never emerging from it. However, they have no intention of bringing Schumacher out of the coma because they fear he could have a brain hemorrhage. The medically induced coma is meant to decrease his brain's need for oxygen so that it is under less str
This much is clear - Michael Schumacher is in stable condition, but remains in a medically induced coma following a skiing accident on December 29. From there, information on the seven-time Formula One champion's status is dodgy at best, with speculation from a number of sources that all have the distinction of not being part of Schumacher's medical team.
Michael Schumacher may have completed his Formula One career with Mercedes-Benz, but the German racer will forever be associated with the Scuderia Ferrari, where he spent the better part of a decade winning just about everything.

As family members rallied around Michael Schumacher Monday, the extent of his injuries became clearer. French publication Paris Match reports that an unnamed doctor at the Grenoble, France, hospital has confirmed that the seven-time Formula One World Champion 1 is battling a number of "very serious problems" stemming from his weekend skiing accident sustained in the French Alps. First, Schumacher endured cerebral hemorrhaging that was repeatedly "flooding the brain coaxial lesions" and he has al
Michael Schumacher is in a fight for his life.

Reports coming in from Europe indicate that the seven-time Formula One World Champion Michael Schumacher was skiing at a resort in Meribel, France, when he fell and injured himself, hitting his head on a rock.

In Texas, during what will go down as one of the absolute best inaugural Grand Prix weekends in series history, there was yet another Formula One record set by his lordship, the soon to retire Michael Schumacher of the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 squad. And, no, it wasn't his finishing in 16th place and lapped by the leaders that got the attention. Nor was it his recent purchase of a 500-acre horse ranch in Texas.
In 1995, a 10-year-old Lewis Hamilton walked up to McLaren team principal Ron Dennis and declared "I want to race for you one day."
