The seven-time world champion was placed in an artificially induced coma after he met with a serious accident while skiing in the resort of Meribel. He was airlifted to a nearby hospital and underwent a brain surgery.
There were reports that Schumacher might never wake up from the coma, but last week his spokesman said he was in stable condition. On Wednesday, L'Equipe reported that Schumacher had "reacted positively" to the process begun this week at the CHU hospital in the south west city of Grenoble, where he's been since the December 29 fall.
In the first statement since Schumacher's wife, Corinne, appealed for the family to be left in peace on Jan. 7, Kehm repeated that "any information regarding Michael's health not coming from the doctors treating him or from his management must be treated as pure speculation."
