A friend of Formula One legend Michael Schumacher has revealed the 45 year-old is making progress, but remains paralysed in a wheelchair without the ability to speak.
"Schumacher is better, but everything is relative," former F1 driver Philippe Streiff told F1i Magazine.
"He can't speak. He is paralyzed and is in a wheelchair. He has problems with memory and speech. As soon as he is with his family again, he will be able to recover faster, but it will be difficult."
Schumacher spent six months in a medically induced coma after suffering severe head injuries from a skiing accident in the French Alps in December 2013.

Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone has dismissed suggestions the sport needs to engage with a younger audience and develop a greater awareness of social media.
Ecclestone and F1 have often been criticised for a lack of activity on Twitter, Facebook et al, which in turn could help attract a new fanbase.
Although television global audience figures remain high at around 350million per grand prix weekend, that has dropped from 500million in recent years.
I'm not interested in tweeting, Facebook and whatever this nonsense is.
I tried to find out, but in any case I'm too old-fashioned. I couldn't see any value in it.
And, I don't know what the so-called young generation of today really wants. What is it? You ask a 15 or 16-year-old kid 'What do you want?' and they don't know. The challenge is getting the audience in the first place.
I say to some of these people who start this nonsense about social media, look at what tobacco companies tried to do, get people smoking their brand early on because then people continue smoking their brand forever.
Administrators of Formula One team Caterham are crowd-funding in an attempt to raise £2.35million.
The money would allow them to take their place on the grid for the final raise of the season in Abu Dhabi.
Those willing to donate to #RefuelCaterhamF1 are being asked to provide at least £10 in exchange for a reward.
Finbarr O'Connell, administrator and interim Caterham team principal, said: "We are working non-stop to get the team back racing, initially in Abu Dhabi.
"But hopefully that will be just a stepping stone to get it back racing on a permanent basis, under new ownership.
"In order to achieve that one of our most useful, innovative and effective options right now is crowd-funding."
The Marussia F1 team has officially ceased trading, administrator FRP Advisory has confirmed.
Geoff Rowley, joint administrator at FRP Advisory, said: "It goes without saying that it's deeply regrettable that a business with such a great following in Britain and worldwide has had to cease trading and close its doors."
Former F1 world champion Nigel Mansell says he's 'delighted' that Lewis Hamilton has broken his record of the most Grand Prix wins by a British driver.
Hamilton roared to victory in the US Grand Prix with a daring late move to seal the 32nd win of his career, surpassing Mansell's 31 victories.
"I think it's fantastic," Mansell told ITV News, "I'm delighted that Lewis is now on his way to a second championship win."
Mansell doesn't expect Hamilton to stop on 32 wins: "I expect his target will go up at least another 10 to 15 race wins over the next two years."
Mansell won the Driver's Championship in 1992 with Williams.
