News.com.au is reporting that Michael Schumacher is “conscious”.

The former F1 champion suffered extensive head injuries after a ski accident six years ago, and his family has been incredibly tight-lipped about his condition.

But now it’s being reported that he has been taken to a Paris hospital for stem cell treatment, and is conscious.

The treatment began Tuesday morning and it’s expected he will return home on Wednesday.
