Brain surgeons throughout Europe have told Michael Schumacher’s wife Corinne, and brother Ralph, that there is little hope that the legendary racer has very little (if any) chance of recovery. The family has been concerned over the fact that French doctors at the Grenoble hospital where he has been treated since his horrific skiing accident on December 29, 2013, have almost no hope that he will ever recover, and will remain in a “vegetative” states for the remainder of his life.

According to a report in Britain's Daily Telegraph, “experts say that artificial comas usually last for up to three weeks and that Schumacher has shown very little progress which dims chances of a recovery.”
Schumacher, 45. was injured when he crashed and hit his head on a boulder while skiing with his son and friends in the Alpine resort of Meribel. Although he was wearing a helmet at the time, the impact was so severe that it broke in two.

In the meantime, The Bahrain International Circuit has named a corner of the track after Schumacher in honor of his many achievements in Formula 1, “as well as his interest in the BIC circuit design.
