Frankfurt: Michael Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm says the seven-time Formula One champion is still in the process of waking up from an induced coma following a skiing accident on December 29. The Bild newspaper reported on Wednesday that Schumacher had developed pneumonia, but Kehm's emailed statement on Thursday made no mention of that. (Schumi contracts lung infection)
Kehm says "as often in such situations no day is like the next," and that Schumacher's family does not wish to disclose medical details in order to protect Schumacher's privacy.
Kehm says "the family continues to strongly believe in Michael's recovery" and that the important thing "is not the speed of the recovery but that Michael's healing process progresses in a continuous and controlled way."
Schumacher is being treated for severe head trauma in a hospital in Grenoble, France.
