Reports say Michael Schumacher is no longer bedridden
The seven-time F1 world champion is still recovering from his head trauma nearly five years on
It has been nearly five years since Michael Schumacher suffered from head injuries while skiing, but reports seem to suggest that the F1 legend isn't isolated to a bed anymore.
Sportsmail has reported that the seven-time world champion isn't completely bedridden and is in fact living in the main body of his Swiss mansion with close family.
If this is true, it is promising news for Schumacher, potentially meaning that his condition is much better than we once thought.
The Jordan, Benetton, Ferrari and Mercedes driver is the greatest F1 driver ever, with a massive 91 wins and seven world championships to his name. Previous to his F1 career, he was a promising sportscar driver with Sauber during the epic Group C era.
His accident however – a fall while skiing off-piste in Mirebel – put a sudden stop to his public life and has seen him recuperating behind closed doors, apart from the odd trip to specialist hospitals.
We wish him all the best with his recovery going forward and hope to see him make a full return to the wheel of a car as soon as possible.
