Former Formula 1 champ Michael Schumacher, 45, is being slowly revived from his medically induced coma after more than a month by gradually reducing his sedation. However, his manager Sabine Kehm stated that it could take a long time for him to fully wake up.

Schumacher suffered severe trauma to the head (including two blood clots that had to be removed surgically) while skiing with his 14-year old son during a family holiday at the Meribel resort in the French Alps. Although now listed as stable by doctors at a hospital in Grenoble, his condition remains critical.

A native of Germany, Schumacher competed for Jordan, Benetton, Ferrari and Mercedes during his career, and won the F1 World Championships in 1994, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004. He is also considered to be one of the “greatest Formula One drivers of all time,” having won 91 races, 68 poles and 155 podiums during his career. He also holds the record for the most “fastest” laps with 77 to his credit, as well as 1566 career points. He is also the only driver in the history of Formula One racing to finish in the top three in every race of a season.
