The manager of Michael Schumacher said she still hopes the Formula 1 legend "will be back with us" with continued support and patience. The seven-time F1 World Champion suffered severe injuries after hitting his head on a rock while skiing in the French Alps in December 2013.

He spent six months in a coma before being transferred to a hospital in Switzerland and is currently receiving intensive treatment at his home. Schumacher's condition has been kept a secret as he attempts to recover from his injuries.

Speaking at the opening of an exhibition of Schumacher's career in Marburg, Sabine Kehm gave a brief update on the 47-year-old without going into exact details. She said: "He is the most successful driver in history and sometimes, on days like this, it is good to be reminded of it.

"Of course, Michael is not here and of course we miss him. We know what has happened and cannot change it. We must accept it and hope with everything we have that, with continued support and patience, he will one day be back with us."

Former Ferrari boss Luca Di Montezemolo recently described the condition of Schumacher as still "not good", more than two years after he had the accident. He added: "Life is strange. He was a fantastic driver and only had one accident with Ferrari in 1999. Unfortunately, a skiing accident ruined his life."
