Michael Schumacher will be able to live 'a relatively normal life', says former Ferrari boss Jean Todt

Michael Schumacher will be able to live "a relatively normal life", says former Ferrari boss and current FIA president Jean Todt.

The Formula One legend suffered serious head injuries following a skiing accident in France last December, which left him in a medically-induced coma.

Todt, who became close friends with Schumacher during their time at Ferrari, delivered the promising news after recently visiting the seven-time world champion at his home in Switzerland.

"We may assume that Schumacher can live a relatively normal life within a short period of time," the FIA president told Belgian broadcaster RTL.

"What we can say is that he will probably never again drive a Formula One car."

He added: "He fights. His condition improves, which is very important as is the fact that he is now home with his family."
