The "most difficult time" in Michael Schumacher's "struggle" is now over.
That is the positive message delivered by the F1 legend's wife Corinna, in a brief letter of thanks in the official 2014 German grand prix programme.
The message, in German, said the Schumacher family had been overwhelmed by the support shown by the former Ferrari and Mercedes driver's supporters since his skiing accident.
"It's good to know that we have all come through the most difficult time together," Mrs Schumacher, whose 45-year-old husband is now in a Swiss rehabilitation clinic in the wake of a six-month coma, reportedly wrote.
"Now a period that is expected to take a long time has begun. We trust that in this struggle you will be Michael's allies once again, as you were for so many years in formula one," she added.
