An official update has been issued by Michael Schumacher’s management on Thursday.

The statement released to media was posted on BBC Radio 5 Live reporter Jennie Gow’s Facebook page.

It basically reaffirms the point that no news is no news, unless it’s an official update from either the Schumacher family or the medical team treating him at hospital in Grenoble.

Medical details though, were not disclosed.

“Michael’s family would like to again express their sincere thanks for the continuous sympathy coming from all over the world. The good wishes they receive help the family and, we are convinced they also help Michael, who still is in a waking up process.

“As often in such situation, no day is like the next. The family is thankful for one’s understanding that they would not wish to disclose medical details in order to protect Michael’s privacy. As assured from the beginning we will continue to communicate any decisive new information on Michael’s health state. We are aware that the wake up phase can take a long time.

“The family continues to strongly believe in Michael’s recovery and place all their trust in the doctors’, nurses’ and nursing auxiliaries’ team. The important thing is not the speed of the recovery but that Michael’s heal process progresses in a continuous and controlled way.”

An investigation into the accident is nearing an end, per reports. Meanwhile some medical insight has been offered by former FIA Chief Medical Delegate Gary Hartstein, although he has been very careful to note he is not on scene and is viewing the situation through a medical lens of similar-type scenarios.

    Michael is in deep trouble.

    We all know that, no people more acutely then his family.

    His rests firmly in their bosom daily, being talked too and held and told we love you,I am sure.

    Those common human gestures of touching and talking, of being there in the room constantly and communicating with your hands and your soothing voice to break through to where Michael is are priceless in his or any persons recovery like this.

    We cannot predict a future here and those who try are only showing what they don’t know.

    So, we as fans must rely on our faith and our knowledge that Michael is Michael and you never count him out.

    This race is far from over and he’s got the best pit crew in the business working on his car.

    But the rain has been falling for a while now and Michael is one of the best rain drivers in the business.

    We know you are still there Mike and you are fighting your way back to the front.

    God Speed, Michael, you and your family are in our daily prayers.

    You never gave up once in your life and we won’t on you, brother.

    I wish you all the best, Michael.
