Forty-five year old Michael Schumacher, has been discharged from hospital. The former Formula One world champion was moved to his family
home in Switzerland for further rehabilitation, nine months after his life-threatening skiing accident.
His manager, Sabine Kehm, said in a statement that Michael had returned home to his family estate on the shores of Lake Geneva.
“Henceforth, Michael's rehabilitation will take place at his home. Considering the severe injuries he suffered, progress has been made in the past weeks and months. There is still, however, a long and difficult road ahead.
“We would like to extend our gratitude to the entire team at CHUV Lausanne for their thorough and competent work.
“We ask that the privacy of Michael's family continue to be respected, and that speculations about his state of health be avoided,” said Kelm.
It would be recalled that in July, Corinna, Schumacher’s wife, broke her silence with a message of heartfelt thanks in a programme for the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim.
She wrote: “Dear motorsport friends, this is a message to all of you who have lived a passion for Michael’s sport in all the years together with him, and who have supported him in the past half year off the track as well.
“The German Grand Prix gives me the perfect opportunity to cordially thank you for the good wishes and positive energies you keep sending Michael. I have to say, your sympathies literally blew us all away! Good to know that together we made it through the hardest time!”
