'Shumacher showing signs of improvement' says manager (ANSA) - Berlin, April 3 - The condition of world champion Formula One driver Michael Schumacher might be improving, his manager told Germany's Bild newspaper Thursday.

"There are encouraging signs and perceptible improvements," said Sabine Kehm. Schumacher, 45, a seven-time F1 world champion, suffered serious brain injuries after hitting his head on a rock when skiing off-piste in the exclusive French resort of Meribel on December 29.

The Ferrari racing legend has been in a medically induced coma since.

Doctors have been attempting to bring him gradually out of the coma by reducing sedating medication.
