FRANKFURT, Germany – Michael Schumacher's manager says the seven-time Formula One champion is still in the process of waking up from an induced coma following a skiing accident on Dec. 29.
The Bild newspaper reported Wednesday that Schumacher had developed pneumonia, but Sabine Kehm's emailed statement Thursday made no mention of that.
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.
