Michael Schumacher’s family has been sparse with details about the former F1 star’s condition, preferring to keep his treatment private, but they did say that he is no longer in a coma and ale to communicate with his family. Schumacher’s wife did say that she was “sure” that the outpouring of support from fans and well wishers helped Michael in his recovery.

According to the New York Times, Schumacher will be moving to a hospital 20 miles from his home to allow his wife and children, who were commuting 100 miles each way by car or helicopter, to visit more easily.
