Jean-Louis Moncent, a French F1 commentator, talked with Europe 1 radio station where he said: "I saw his son and he told me that Schumi is waking up very slowly; very slowly. Although things are going at a slow pace, he has a lot of time, I would say he has his whole life in front of him to get back on track". Moncet also said just how Schumacher was injured, as he hit a rock during his fall. Moncet added: "The problem for Michael was not the hit, but the mounting of the Go-Pro camera that he had on his helmet that injured his brain".
