Formula One legend Michael Schumacher wakes up from comaby

F1 champion Michael Schumacher has been transferred to a Swiss hospital after emerging from his coma

LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- Legendary F1 driver Michael Schumacher has left hospital in Grenoble, France, where he was confined since a freak skiing accident in December 2013. During the accident, the 45-year-old suffered a severe head injury and was placed in a medically induced coma.

Now, nearly six months later, Schumacher has emerged from his coma and transferred to Lausanne university hospital in Switzerland for rehabilitation. The facility is about 20 miles from the home of the seven-time F1 champion.

"Michael has left the CHU Grenoble to continue his long phase of rehabilitation. He is not in a coma anymore," Schumacher's manager, Sabine Kehm, said in a statement on behalf of his family on Monday.

"For the future we ask for understanding that his further rehabilitation will take place away from the public eye," she said.

Michael Schumacher, who retired from F1 racing at the end of the 2012 season, is widely regarded as one of the greatest F1 drivers of all time. He holds many F1 drivers' records, including most championships, fastest laps and number of races won.
