BERLIN, June 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Germany’s F1 legend Michael Shumacher has recovered from coma and been transferred from the French hospital in Grenoble to another undisclosed medical facility, German media reported on Monday citing his manager.

“Michael has left the CHU Grenoble (hospital) to continue his long phase of rehabilitation. He is not in a coma anymore,” TheLocal.de news website cited Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm as saying in a statement.

The seven-time F1 champion Schumacher was medically induced into artificial coma at the Grenoble hospital after he sustained a severe head injury on December 29, when he was mountain skiing in the resort of Meribel in the French Alps.

Kehm refrained from giving any further details about the current condition of the 45-year-old Schumacher, who underwent two brain surgeries since the accident in December, and did not disclose the location for his upcoming rehabilitation.

“For the future we ask for understanding that his further rehabilitation will take place away from the public eye,” she said.

Kehm also said that Schumacher’s “family would like to explicitly thank all his treating doctors, nurses and therapists in Grenoble as well as the first aiders at the place of the accident, who did an excellent job in those first months.”

Reportedly, the racer was transferred to a hospital in Lausanne, Switzerland. "Mr. Schumacher has been admired in our hospital," said the representative of the medical center. He added that the hospital will do everything possible to protect the sportsman from "interference in his private life and give him the best care."

In late January, doctors at the hospital in Grenoble began to gradually reduce the dose of sedatives prescribed to Michael Schumacher. This was done in order to gradually bring the patient out of medical coma.

Schumacher debuted in the F1 racing in 1991 to win his first two consecutive champion’s titles in 1994 and 1995 with team Benetton. Between 2000 and 2004 he won five consecutive titles racing for Ferrari. He retired in 2006 but made a comeback with the team Mercedes in 2010 before finally quitting with the so-called Royal Racing in 2012.
