LAKE GENEVA, Switzerland - Ten months after his skiing fall, Michael Schumacher is now "waking up very slowly" from his serious brain injuries.

That is the claim of the respected French F1 commentator Jean-Louis Moncet, who told Europe 1 radio he recently spoke about the seven-times World champion's condition with Schumacher's kart-racing son Mick.


Moncet said: "I saw his son and he told me that Schumi is waking up very slowly; very slowly."

Recently, Schumacher left a rehabilitation clinic in Switzerland and returned home to his estate on the shores of Lake Geneva.

Moncet continued: "Although things are going at a slow pace, he (Schumacher) has a lot of time, I would say his whole life in front of him to get back on track."

Moncet, 69, also revealed more information about the way Schumacher was injured when he fell and struck a rock whilst skiing with Mick in France last late December.

"The problem for Michael was not the hit, but the mounting of the Go-Pro (camera) that he had on his helmet that injured his brain," he said.
