Doctor of Michael Schumacher’s says F1 hero could recover in 3 years


Recovering: Michael Schumacher could recover from his brain injury within three years, says a doctor who treated him just after his ski accident

A French doctor who treated Michael Schumacher,45, after the F1 champ’s ski accident has predicted a possible recovery within three years. Michael is being treated at home after spending six months in a medically-induced coma following the accident in Meribel, France.

Dr Payen, said the former race car driver is no longer in a coma and is slowly getting better.’Life after a head injury is punctuated by stages,’ He predicted a convalescence of one to three years.’We hope, but we have to give him time.’

This comes after Schumacher’s 15-year-old son Mick earlier this month passed on news that his father was ‘waking up very slowly.’
