Following the serious injuries sustained by Michael Schumacher in a skiing accident in France on December 29, 2013, Michael's family first posted a message on Michael Schumacher's official Facebook Fan Page stating: "We would like to thank the medical team who we know do everything possible to help Michael. We like to also thank the people from all around the world who have expressed their sympathy and sent their best wishes for Michael's recovery"

Later Michael Schumacher's official website has been updated with message from his family entitled "Thank you for your support" which reads: "Following Michael's skiing accident, we would like to thank the people from all around the world who have expressed their sympathy and sent their best wishes for his recovery. They are giving us great support. Thank You."

Even racing giants Mercedes and Ferrari shared their sentiments of concern on Michael Schumacher's condition on their respective Facebook pages.

MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS posted on their Facebook page: "Following the serious injuries sustained by Michael Schumacher in a skiing accident yesterday in France, the thoughts and sympathies of all at Mercedes-Benz Motorsport and the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team are with Michael, his family and friends. We have been shocked to learn that he is in a critical condition and are closely monitoring the latest medical bulletins from Grenoble. We all know the depth of Michael's fighting spirit and send him all our strength and support in this latest battle. We sincerely hope that he will make a full recovery and can be with us again soon."

Mercedes AMG F1 wrote: "All thoughts and prayers are with Michael and his family at this time. We are monitoring closely the latest medical bulletins from Grenoble. Michael has amazing fighting spirit. We are sending him all our strength for this most important battle #KaempfenSchumi. "

The Italian automotive company Ferrari posted a message on Facebook: "Everyone at Ferrari has been in a state of anxiety since hearing about Michael Schumacher's accident. That includes the president, Luca di Montezemolo, who through the Scuderia team Principal Stefano Domenicali is in constant contact with the family and those close to the German champion. Montezemolo has offered his encouragement and support at this very difficult time, with the hope that better news will come soon."

Ferrari engineer Rob Smedley told BBC Radio 5 live: "This is not a very comfortable time. My thoughts and prayers are with Michael, from me and all his friends in the industry. His family must be going through an awful time. But if you wanted someone to fight for their life then Michael Schumacher would be that person, because he is extremely fit but also a very mentally tough character. The best guy is on the bed there, fighting for his life. What he represented was the fight, the spirit and the absolute determination to win. Second was never good enough. He pushed everyone else along, and that's what's giving me a lot of hope right now. He's lying in a hospital bed in Grenoble and he needs that fighting spirit to pull through."

Keep sharing for more prayers for the legend: Michael Schumacher - Get Well Soon. Also check the official Michael Schumacher Fan Page for all the updates on his recovery.

Gary Hartstein (former f1 doctor) just tweeted  stating his belief that Michael will survive for sure:  

We agree with Doctor Hartstein and wish the racing star a fast recovery!
