Manager says Schumacher ‘improving’ image

May 23 (GMM/Inautonews.com) Michael Schumacher’s manager says the F1 legend is improving.

The seven time world champion has not been seen publicly since striking his head on a rock whilst skiing almost 17 months ago.

“We are happy to say (he) still improves and I say this always regarding the severity of the injury he had,” manager Sabine Kehm was quoted as saying on Friday.

Kehm was being interviewed for an event to launch a carbon fibre Audemars Piguet watch that Schumacher was involved in designing prior to his skiing accident.

“Of course,” she was quoted by the Swiss daily Le Temps, “the fight will take a very, very long time for everybody involved, and we are happy to take this fight” on.
