CORINNA Schumacher has decided to sell the private jet once regularly used by her now critically injured husband Michael as doctors attempt to get the Formula One driver fit enough to return to the family home in Switzerland, according to German media reports.

Schumacher (45) was transferred to a Swiss rehabilitation clinic in Lausanne in June after spending over five months at Grenoble University Hospital, where he was treated for the serious brain injury he suffered during a skiing accident in France last December.

Earlier this month, the driver was reported to have emerged from a medically induced coma and to be able to communicate with his family by moving his eyelids.

His wife, Corinna, told a German magazine her husband was "getting better".

The Swiss media said it was hoped he could return home by the end of the month. Germany's mass circulation 'Bild' newspaper reported yesterday that Corinna Schumacher had decided to sell the driver's private jet, which the Formula 1 driver used to attend racing events and for holidays with Corinna and their two children Gina-Maria (17) and Mick (15).

The aircraft is a grey Falcon 2000EX jet bearing his initials 'MS' on the tail.

'Bild' said Schumacher once flew the plane an average of 400 hours a year.

He was reported to have paid €25m for the aircraft.

'Bild' said his wife would offer the jet for €25m and added: "The reasons for the sale are obvious." (© Daily Telegraph, London)
