    I think I might cry… But I am a guy, so I won’t.

    Comon Michael!!!!

    1. I will be having tears of joy the day we will hear that Michael has finally woken up and is recovered. Waiting for that news. :)

      Keep fighting Michael !

  7. I really hope he’ll be somewhat like the old Michael Schumacher if he wakes up and not severely handicapped… come on Michael.

  8. Oh God, I really hope Michael will wake up from coma!!!

  9. Wow! That’s absolutely brilliant news!

  10. Excellent news!! I was becoming less positive over time. Great to hear this

  11. Any news on his recovery is great to hear. I still hope that Michael can make a strong recovery, although the road there will be a difficult one. My thoughts are with Michael Schumacher and his family, and I hope their privacy during such a difficult time will be respected.

  12. Great news. Come on Michael, we have faith in you!

  13. Great news.

  14. Wow ! that is great news . There is hope .

  15. Against all odds!!! That is definitely Michael Schumacher. I hope that he will be able to wake up and see his family. My father died recently so I know the situation.

    1. I send you a big hug.

      Come on, Michael. It really does make me so sad, this situation.

  16. I hope he didn’t had an amnesia….

  17. That’s great news. I do sincerly hope he’ll have as few as possible side effects from this accident. It must be especially difficult for his children and my thoughts are with them, even more than with MSC himself.

  18. A guy next to me on the bus just gave me a weird look because I just visibly cried.

    1. +1 with my coworker here…

  19. Keep going Michael!

  20. Just heard this fantastic news on the radio. After so long with no news this is brilliant. Small steps. :)
