A leading neurosurgeon has warned that it is "extremely unlikely" that Michael Schumacher will make a full recovery, even though he has now woken up from a coma.
Tipu Aziz, professor of neurosurgery at the University of Oxford said the driver was likely to be "better than he was" but because he had been in a coma so long "a full recovery is extremely unlikely".
"The fact he was in a coma for so long ... we can assume that he has had quite a bad injury. People don't tend to make a full recovery from that sort of injury," Professor Aziz added.
