It’s been over two years since racing car champ Michael Schumacher suffered horrific head injuries from a Skiing accident in the French Apls.

And now Luca Cordero di Montezemolo has spoken to Ecumenical News, revealing the 47-year-old’s health has turned a corner.

“I’m very pleased to know that he is reacting,” Luca explained to the publication.

“I know how strong he is. I’m sure that thanks to his determination, which will be crucial, he will come out from this very, very difficult situation,” he added.

Since the German sports star’s injury, very little information has been released from his camp.

Michael’s wife of 21 years, Corinna Schumacher, has adapted their home in Switzerland for Michael and has a team of doctors and nurses working around the clock.

In November 2014, the sporting legend’s good pal and fellow race champion Philippe Streiff, who is also in a wheelchair, said: “He is getting better but everything is relative. It’s very difficult. He can’t speak. Like me, he is in a wheelchair paralysed. He has memory problems and speech problems.”

Meanwhile, in May this year the father-of-two’s manager Sabine Kehm said that they are still holding out hope for his recovery.

“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 that we have that with continued support and patience he will one day be back with us.”
