Berlin - Michael Schumacher's manager declined to comment on Wednesday on reports that doctors in France have begun the process of bringing the Formula One legend out of an artificial coma, one month since his skiing accident.

"I am stressing again that any statement regarding Michael's health not coming from the doctors treating him or from his management must be considered speculation," Sabine Kehm said on Twitter.

Schumacher's manager was responding to a report in French newspaper L'Equipe.

Citing hospital sources, it claimed the seven-time Formula One champion was "reacting positively."

"I repeat that we will not comment on speculations," Kehm said.

Schumacher has been in an artificial coma in a Grenoble hospital since suffering severe head injuries in a skiing accident at the Meribel resort on December 29.

The world of Formula One united behind Schumacher during the first days of testing for the new season in Jerez, Spain, with his former teams Ferrari and Mercedes, as well as world champion Sebastian Vettel, among those expressing their support.

Piero Ferrari, the son of Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari, also joined in with a message on the website of the team where Schumacher spent 11 years of his career and won five of his seven world titles.

"Dear Michael, having spent so many years at Ferrari, you became one of us.

"'You thrilled us so often, bringing us great joy, but the greatest one is yet to come: namely seeing you here in Maranello again, to meet your second family, the Ferrari one. We are waiting for you," Piero Ferrari said.
