Geneva - Michael Schumacher's official website will be reactivated on Thursday to mark the 20th anniversary of his first Formula One title, his manager said, as he recovers from a skiing accident that almost ended his life.

It is hoped the site will give fans of the motor racing star a "home" as they continue to support him in his recovery, Sabine Kehm said on Wednesday.

"November 13, 1994, is a special day in the sporting life of Michael Schumacher – 20 years ago he was the first German to ever win the Formula One world championship title, his first of seven titles," she said.

"To mark the 20th anniversary of his first world champion title we will reactivate Michael's homepage.

"We hope to thus give the many fans from all over the world, whose sympathy is still unbroken after his accident, a home."

Following his accident in the French Alps in December, the website was replaced with a cover page thanking fans for their support.

Schumacher is receiving treatment at his home in Gland, Switzerland, after suffering brain injuries when he slammed his head against a rock.

He had two operations to remove potentially fatal blood clots and was then put into a medically induced coma, but he was allowed to leave hospital in September after being treated first in a hospital in the French city of Grenoble and then in a clinic in Lausanne, Switzerland.

No new information was given about his condition, but the French doctor in charge of his care said in September he was making progress but would need years to recover.
