Michael Schumacher could leave a rehabilitation clinic and return home by Christmas.
That is the claim of the German weekly Bunte, citing sources at the facility in Lausanne where the F1 legend is recuperating after his long coma and skiing fall last December.
The report said it is possible Schumacher, 45, could return home to his mansion on the shore of Lake Geneva by Christmas.
But the news is not all good. Bunte claims: "He (Schumacher) needs constant assistance throughout the day".
And "nobody is prepared to say how long it will be before his motor, language and memory skills are restored".
