The 45-year-old still has a long recovery ahead of him, but everyone is rallying behind the seven-time Formula One World Champion. His manager Sabine Kehm announced on Tuesday. "Considering the severe injuries he suffered, progress has been made in the past weeks and months," read an official statement. "There is still, however, a long and difficult road ahead." 

Kehm added that "massive changes in his health status" were not the reason for the decision to move Schumacher from rehabilitation to his home. The statement also denied there has been "any rebuilding" at Schumacher's estate to facilitate his return.
