In the ongoing saga that is Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher’s painstakingly slow recovery (although ‘slow recovery’ is better than ‘no recovery’), there appears to be some slight improvements. It is now believed that Schumacher can finally recognise some of his family members, and although speech is something that still evades him, it is a fantastic Christmas present to the Schumacher family that he can finally recognise those close to him. There have been some ups and downs along the way, but with time, the expert interventions of his medical team and a bit of luck, we hope he will recover in time.
