Good news on Schumacher
It's official: " Michael Schumacher's doctors have begun to reduce the seven-time Formula 1 world champion's sedation to begin what they describe as "the waking up process".
"For the protection of the family, it was originally agreed by the interested parties to communicate this information only once this process was consolidated."
Schumacher's management have repeatedly underlined in recent weeks that only information released by them or the hospital should be treated as accurate, amid a global clamour for more news about the injured German.
In Thursday's statemen they reiterated this request while also thanking fans and the F1 community for their support.
"The family of Michael Schumacher is again requesting to respect its privacy and the medical secrets, and to not disturb the doctors treating Michael in their work.
The above information was released on Michael Schumacher's official Facebook site. We truly believe that everyone should respect the Schumacher family's requests, and we will only rely on information coming from the official channels regarding Michael Schumacher's state.
Schumi, we all support you!
