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.
