BERLIN — Formula One great Michael Schumacher is no longer in a coma and has left a French hospital where he had been receiving treatment since a skiing accident in December, his manager said Monday.
Schumacher left the hospital in Grenoble "to continue his long phase of rehabilitation," manager Sabine Kehm said in a statement. She gave no further details on Schumacher's condition, and her office declined to elaborate on the statement.
Schumacher is now at the Lausanne University Hospital in neighboring Switzerland, hospital spokesman Darcy Christen said, without elaborating.
Schumacher, his wife and their two children live in Switzerland. His accident happened on a family vacation as Schumacher was skiing with his 14-year-old son.
The 45-year-old German driver was hospitalized with severe head injuries after his Dec. 29 ski accident, which split his helmet as he crashed into rocks on the slope at the Meribel ski resort in the French Alps.
