The seven-time world champion’s rehabilitation will continue but he has now left the hospital where he was taken on December 29th following a skiing accident in the French Alps.
There will be no further updates on the former Ferrari and Mercedes driver’s recovery or condition.
A statement from his management said: “Michael has left the CHU Grenoble to continue his long phase of rehabilitation. He is not in a coma anymore.
“His 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.
“The family also wishes to thank all the people who have sent Michael all the many good wishes to Michael. We are sure it helped him.
“For the future we ask for understanding that his further rehabilitation will take place away from the public eye.”
