Hope Ignites For F1 Legend Michael Schumacher?

Hope Ignites For F1 Legend Michael Schumacher?”

Schumacher's health has been kept under wraps by his family and advisors in the years since his ski accident in 2013.

Swedish and German media outlets today reported the 48-year-old sporting legend could be flown to the USA for state-of-the-art medical treatment, where a brain injury specialist is set to offer him "new hope".

It was in December 2013, Michael Schumacher was skiing with his son in Meribel, in the Savoie region, when a violent fall on the head led to his hospitalization.

According to Swedish newspaper Expressen and German magazine Bravo, Schumacher's wife Corinna "decided to try new care", including consulting a brain injury specialist named Dr Mark Meeks.

"We have a large experience of patients who suffer from this kind of trauma", said the doctor to the magazine.

Little was heard about Schumacher's progress after the accident until April 2014, when his family said he had shown "moments of consciousness and awakening".

"There is probably no clinic in Europe that handles as many cases as we do".

It was reported that Schumacher's family and close advisers have imposed a strict media blackout pertaining his medical condition out of respect for the family.

The only member of the Formula 1 community which has had the opportunity to visit Michael Schumacher is FIA president Jean Todt.

Now, reports emerging from Germany indicate that Schumacher is "weak" and that his wife has chose to take him to America to "try new care". An alarming report surfaced past year, based on comments from former Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo, but was quickly scrapped by the family's spokesperson Sabine Khem.
