Schumacher's condition complicated by lung infection- report (ANSA) - Berlin, February 12 - Michael Schumacher's recovery from severe head injuries from a skiing accident in the French alps at the end of December has been complicated by the contraction of a lung infection, the German tabloid Bild reported on Wednesday.

Without citing sources, the newspaper said the seven-time Formula One world champion's infection followed the artificial awakening process from coma that doctors began last month. The former Ferrari driver is being treating with an aggressive regime of antibiotics, the paper said.

We don't comment on speculation," Schumacher's manager, Sabine Kehm, told Bild.
