“We are and remain confident that Michael will pull through and will wake up,” the relatives said in a statement.

Doctors in France have been working to bring the seven-time champion out of a medically induced coma.

The 45-year-old German suffered a severe head injury in a skiing accident in the French Alps on 29 December.

He has been kept in a coma to help reduce the swelling in his brain

On Wednesday, Mr Schumacher’s manager, Sabine Kehm, released a statement on behalf of his family because of “an increasing interest in [his] condition in light of the start of the Formula 1 season”.

The family praised the efforts of the French doctors, but also warned this was “a time to be very patient”.

“It was clear from the start that this will be a long and hard fight for Michael.”

  1. Michael is a very strong man and is going to fight to recovery or his demise depending on how bad the accident has harmed him. If anybody can come out of it under the same conditions, it is him. If by some chance he does not make it, it is because of medical incompetence or inspite of putting up the best fight, his injuries were such that nothing else could be done for him.
