Michael Schumacher has reportedly been released from neurosurgical intensive care unit, a new report states.         

According to a news report by Colorful as reported by German news outlet Focus.de, Schumacher is now lying in another department of the University Hospital of Grenoble. Clinical sources who refused to identify themselves revealed that a "special rehabilitation clinic" is being prepared for Schumacher where he is slated to receive a kind of "rehab treatment," the Web site further reported. However, Schumacher obviously is not out of danger as the sources played down the thought of a complete recuperation for the 45-year-old retired racer.

"Schumacher's laying in a special rehabilitation clinic was being prepared and the chances of full recovery were dropped."

The report about Schumacher's alleged transfer to a rehab clinic was backed by another German media site, Bunte.de as reported by Abenzeitung Muenchen, which was also relying on vague information from undisclosed sources from the hospital.

Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm, who had previously been tasked to provide updates, has yet to comment or confirm the news.

It has been more than five months since Schumacher's tragic skiing crash in the slopes of Meribel in the French Alps. The seven-time world champion's family and manager last spoke about Schumacher's health condition in the middle of April, stating that the German ace has "moments of consciousness and awakening." Since then, the information on Schumacher's condition has been diminutive.

With the media absence, Schumacher's former colleagues can only continue to pray for his recovery. "I have been following it and hope he makes it," Nico Rosberg was quoted saying.

"We hope for a positive message, that he gets better," Sebastian Vettel said.

"I still think about him every day, I continue to pray for him," said Felipe Massa. "He's a good friend, he helped me a lot in my career."

"We knew him to be so strong, determined, and invincible," Fernando Alonso said during his run in Monaco. "What's happened to him was surreal. He was a hero, even to me, when I was racing karts. One day, I found myself facing him in F1. It was Michael Schumacher, the Michael we still hold in our hearts, and we're waiting for him to awake."
