Michael Schumacher is reportedly still "slowly waking up" from his coma.

It's been nearly a year since one of the world's greatest drivers was injured in a skiing accident. The 45-year-old Formula One star suffered a serious blow while skiing at the French resort of Méribel on December 29, 2013 that left him in a coma. But there finally seems to be some positive news.

He’s currently being treated at a medical suite in his Geneva home, according to UK newspaper The Telegraph.

And apparently Michael’s 15-year-old son, Mick, has passed on a positive update to a family friend, French Formula One commentator Jean-Louis Moncet, who has spoken about Michael’s condition to Europe 1 radio.

“I saw his son and he told me that Schumi is waking up very slowly; very slowly,” Jean-Louis said, according to the Daily Mail.

“Although things are going at a slow pace, he has a lot of time. I would say he has his whole life in front of him to get back on track.”

The commentator also spoke in detail about Michael’s accident.

“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 explained.

Michael was placed in a medically induced coma after the incident.

In a statement last month, his manager, Sabine Kehm, confirmed rehabilitation would continue at Michael’s home after he was moved from a clinic in Lausanne, Romandy, where he was previously undergoing treatment.

“Henceforth, Michael's rehabilitation will take place at his home. Considering the severe injuries he suffered, progress has been made in the past weeks and months. There is still, however, a long and difficult road ahead," Sabine said.

Michael's family also spoke in July, with his wife Corinna penning a message in the programme for the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim.

“Dear motorsport friends, this is a message to all of you who have lived a passion for Michael’s sport in all the years together with him, and who have supported him the past half year off the track as well," she wrote.

“The German Grand Prix gives me the perfect opportunity to cordially thank you for the good wishes and positive energies you keep sending Michael. I have to say your sympathies literally blew us all away! Good to know that together we made it through the hardest time!”
