    He underwent surgery and has been put in an artificial coma to allow a better -if possible- recovery

    It seems ironic that after all that F 1 racing that it would come to a crash on a fairly slow ski run. I sincerely hope he fully recovers. Grenoble has a medical school so he should be getting good care.

    I think they will try to wake him up soon. I think they did two or three ops to get the blood out from causing pressure.

    Well the F 1 season is drawing near and unless Red Bull-Renault is sandbagging this will be a far more interesting season, but I admit to0 being a Red Bull-Vettel fan.

    I see where Bernie is touting an Azerbaijani F 1 race in a few years, by then it will probably be called the Russian Grand Prix.

    Shouldnt we start a F1 2014 for chat about the coming season.
    Seems a bit odd having it on the Schummi one.

    I always thought it interesting that he loved racing especially against Mika Häkkinen.

    Great racing in Spa from both...

    There continues to be much discussion and speculation on Motorsport forums.

    It's difficult because Michael Schumacher retains a large and very loyal fanbase who understandably can take offence at some remarks. But it does seem that MS has remained in a 'vegetative state' for over seven years now, and reportedly there seems to be no sign of any recovery.

    There is always hope, but this is a tragic situation and there is a growing feeling that he may never recover.
