Michael Schumacher Still Receives Treatment at Grenoble; Family Remains Very Quiet but ‘No News is Good News’ According to Former F1 Boss

Critical but stable, Michael Schumacher reportedly still receives treatment at the University Hospital of Grenoble.
A spokesperson for the Schmieder Allensbach Hospital in Germany has contested the report of a German radio station claiming that Schumacher had been transferred and admitted there, Focus.de reported. "Previously, 'Radio 7' rumors had reported, more than five months in skiing accident, that Formula 1 world champion had been transferred to the hospital in the district of Konstanz, but Schumacher is still in the University Hospital of Grenoble," wrote the Web site.

Hitherto, Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm stated back in April that the seven-time world champion was showing signs of consciousness and awakening. However, significant changes or progress on Schumacher's health was dwarfed in some way due to lack of fresh news about what really is going on inside the room in Grenoble hospital where the former Formula One champion is being treated after the heartbreaking and banal skiing crash, which instantly shattered his life, in slopes of Meribel in December.
In the absence of reliable information about the current condition of Schumacher and from the brutally honest words of former Formula One doctor Gary Hartstein recently, the hope of seeing a healthy Schumacher seems to be fading more and more each day.
No news neither proposes that something bad has chanced nor it suggests that something is wrong, but for Schumacher's former boss Flavio Briatore, not hearing anything about the German ace is perturbing. Briatore, an Italian business magnate and one of Schumacher's first bosses in Formula One, spoke with Radio 24 as reported by Gazeta.it and expressed his thoughts on the media absence about the clinical situation of Schumacher.
"There are no news because the family is very closed, not communicating," Briatore said. "But, surely, no news is not good news," Briatore added.
Schumacher has not seen the daylight at all since his skiing accident in December. He hardly seemed cognizant of his environment.
German physician Dr. Christoph Specht recently said in a TV program that the coma condition cannot be compared to another. "There are always pleasant surprises in which patients wake up after many years."
