Germany - Motorsport veteran Gerhard Berger says he believes his F1 contemporary Michael Schumacher will one day recover from his brain injuries.

Little is known about the seven time world champion's current condition following a 2013 skiing fall, but it emerged in court earlier in May 2017 that he still cannot walk.

"I believe in the miracle and very much hope that we will soon hear positive news from Michael," Berger, the new DTM series boss, told the German newspaper Kolner Express.

The report said Berger is in contact with Schumacher's wife Corinna and son Mick.

The former Ferrari and McLaren driver said: "How Corinna and Mick deal with this difficult situation is admirable. I think it's a wonderful story that Mick has listened to his heart and wants to take on the racing profession.

"Of course Michael's footprints are enormous, but Mick has the talent and the right environment to deal with the pressure.  He is a Schumacher and he knows what he's doing."
