    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.

    I don’t think we should get carried away here. This news may improve Michael’s prospects of recovery, but clearly it is a very long way from recovery itself.

    This is such fantastic news! He has always been a fighter and a racer, and that’s what he has always been fantastic at. I do hope he makes a full recovery!

  11. Keep fighting Michael!!
