Fans remain hopeful about Michael Schumacher's condition

Some hopeful Michael Schumacher fans feel the F1 legend may be on the mend after taking heart from a statement by his agent Sabine Kehm.

Schumacher was holidaying with friends and family in the French Alps when he suffered a severe head injury while skiing in December 2013.

He underwent two life-saving operations and spent around six months in a coma. Very little information has been released about his current condition and it has left fans reading between the lines of any available information.

Discussing plans for the Michael Schumacher Museum this weekend, Kehm said: "During all his active years Michael kept most of his cars and many overalls and helmets.

"At the back of our minds we had always planned to make them available to the public."

Kehm's use of the word 'we' left some feeling that Schumacher was well enough to have a say in the decision making around the museum.

Official updates from Schumacher's family have been incredibly scarce in the months and years following the incident.

Speaking last year, Kehm said: "Michael's health is not a public issue, and so we will continue to make no comment in that regard.

"We have to protect his intimate sphere. Legally seen and in the longer term, every statement related to his health would diminish the extent of his intimate sphere."
