Former Ferrari ace enters his fifth week in a coma, no closer to an outcome.

FIA president and former Ferrari boss Jean Todt has returned to the Grenoble, France hospital bedside of his friend, seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher, who was critically injured in a skiing accident in the French Alps on December 29.

Schumacher has been in a medically induced coma for almost a full month, raising doubts he will ever recover from the accident.

However, the Blick newspaper in Germany reports that journalists, particularly those in Germany, have been warned about making any speculation of Schumacher’s prognosis from his head injury with a letter from lawyers representing the great German’s family.

In the meantime, Bild am Sonntag newspaper quoted Schumacher spokesperson Sabine Kehm as saying Schumacher’s wife Corinna only wants the 45-year-old former Formula One driver’s closest friends to be around him. One of the closest of all is 67-year-old Frenchman Todt, who heads F1′s governing body.

“Michael and Jean formed a deep and respectful friendship during their time at Ferrari,” triple world champion Niki Lauda said.

“That he is at his side now is very important.”
