Kehm: We are happy to say Schumi still improves
Michael Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm says the condition of the Formula 1 legend is constantly improving.
The seven time world champion has not been seen publicly since striking his head on a rock whilst skiing almost 17 months ago.
“We are happy to say (he) still improves and I say this always regarding the severity of the injury he had,” manager Kehm was quoted as saying on Friday.
Kehm was being interviewed for an event to launch a carbon fibre Audemars Piguet watch that Schumacher was involved in designing prior to his skiing accident.
“Of course,” she was quoted by Le Temps, “the fight will take a very, very long time for everybody involved, and we are happy to take this fight” on.
On the weekend of the Monaco Grand Prix it is noteworthy that Schumacher won the fabled race on the streets of Monte Carlo on five occasions – 1994, 1995, 1997, 1999 and 2001 (pictured above) – second only to Ayrton Senna and tied with Graham Hill.
