BERLIN, Germany - It's now two weeks since doctors started trying to wake Michael Schumacher but the F1 legend remains in a coma.

German daily Bild-Zeitung said the former Mercedes and Ferrari driver's wife Corinna - who is at his bedside on a daily basis - is following the doctors' advice by continually talking to the 45-year-old, as there is evidence it can help a patient in Schumacher's condition.


Bild reported that the seven time World champion has often presented reflex twitches since the anaesthetic was reduced, Schumacher is still not responding to deliberate stimuli.

The report also claimed the newly-retired Ross Brawn, who worked closely with Schumacher during the ultra-successful Ferrari era, visited the famous driver's bedside, slipping in almost unnoticed by the media on Thursday (Feb 6) through the staff entrance.

Meanwhile, it is believed that French investigators into the skiing accident are preparing to reveal their findings, with Bild citing 'legal sources' in believing the file will simply be closed.
