The "most difficult time" in Michael Schumacher's "struggle" is now over, wrote the Formula 1 legend's wife Corinna, in a brief letter of thanks in the official 2014 German GP programme.

The message, in German, said the Schumacher family had been overwhelmed by the support shown by the injured former F1 driver's supporters since his skiing fall in December 2013.

CALLING ON SCHUMI'S 'ALLIES'

She wrote: "It's good to know that we have all come through the most difficult time together. Now a period that is expected to take a long time has begun.  We trust that in this struggle you will be Michael's allies once again, as you were for so many years in F1."

The former Ferrari and Mercedes driver is recovering at a Swiss rehabilitation clinic in the wake of a six-month coma.
