Michael Schumacher's family have reiterated their thanks to the fans of the Formula 1 legend, who remains in a coma in a French hospital.

Schumacher has been in a medically induced coma at Grenoble Hospital since suffering severe head injuries while skiing in the French Alps on December 29th.

A statement released a couple of weeks ago revealed that Schumacher's sedation was being eased; today's statement confirms that the process is ongoing.

''Michael's family would like to again express their sincere thanks for the continuous sympathy coming from all over the world. The good wishes they receive help the family and, we are convinced they also help Michael, who still is in a waking up process,' read an official statement.

'As often in such situation, no day is like the next. The family is thankful for one's understanding that they would not wish to disclose medical details in order to protect Michael's privacy.'

'As assured from the beginning we will continue to communicate any decisive new information on Michael's health state. We are aware that the wake up phase can take a long time.'

'The family continues to strongly believe in Michael's recovery and place all their trust in the doctors, nurses and nursing auxiliaries team. The important thing is not the speed of the recovery but that Michael's healing process progresses in a continuous and controlled way.'
