Speculation continues over the health of the Formula 1 star as he prepares to enters his tenth week in an induced coma after he sustained a brain injury while skiing.

One senior German journalist said: "He is in terrible shape but until the family issue a statement we cannot write about it.
"The family have, we are told, been informed that only a miracle can bring him back now."

His wife Corinna and brother Ralf Schumacher have reportedly been consulting other specialists in Europe over fears that he has been "written off " by his medical team, who believe he may be in a permanent vegetative state.

Doctors have continued to look for signs that the former racing driver is aware of his surroundings, such as fluttering of the eyelids or movement of the fingers that is more than a reflex nerve twitch.

But a source close to the family claims that such reactions have not yet been spotted.
The source said: "On Sunday his wife Corinna spent her 45th birthday at his bedside with their children Gina Marie and Mick, his brother Ralf and his father Rolf Schumacher.

"They talked and talked and prayed for him to acknowledge their presence.

"But he remains comatose with tubes feeding him, supplying him with air, giving him medicine and removing waste from his body.
"The doctors have given it to them straight. There is little hope left that he will come out of this.
"Miracles happen, of course, and as a wealthy man he has the best care money can buy. 
"But all the money in the world cannot fix what has happened to him."
Gary Hartstein, a former F1 doctor, echoed this.

Writing on Sunday, he said: "The majority of the patients that come out alive from a coma after this amount of time suffer severe disabilities.

Schumi please wake up!
