In June, it has been revealed that Schumacher has woken up and has been moved to a medical facility in Lausanne, Switzerland to continue his rehabilitation, after spending nearly six months in a coma following his skiing accident in the French Alps back in December. Schumacher's wife Corinna has confirmed and told German news outlet Neue Post in July that the seven-time world champion was slowly making progress. It was an optimistic statement regarding Schumacher's future health condition. Schumacher's family has not released a new statement on Schumacher's condition since the last update.
