Ailing Formula 1 world champion Michael Schumacher has been discharged from the Georges Pompidou hospital in Paris after “experimental treatment.”

Interestingly, a hospital staffer said the racing legend was “conscious.”  This put to rest many speculations about the champion's current health condition.

However, broad details on the legend’s health are still unknown.  According to Michael Schumacher news, the seven-time Formula 1 World Champion was admitted to the Paris clinic under a fake name. 

Schumacher, 50, came to the hospital last Monday.

He reportedly underwent stem cell surgery, according to the local newspaper Le Parisien.  Media reports also quoted a hospital worker who confirmed that Schumacher was “conscious.”

Surgeon Professor Philippe Menasche, 69, has been famous as the doctor who performed the world's first embryonic cell transplant on a patient with heart failure conditions.

Schumacher has been to this Paris hospital twice before and was carried in a helicopter.

Secrecy about the health condition

Considerable secrecy exists over the German legend’s health condition ever since he suffered serious brain injuries from a skiing accident in 2013 at the French Alps.

Schumacher’s outstanding racing career is dotted with unique achievements. He won seven world titles and 91 wins.

After the accident, the German champion was in a coma for nearly six months. Upon leaving the hospital in June 2014 Schumacher was put under home care at his Lake Geneva residence in Switzerland.

Reports said that Schumacher’s medical bills cost £115,000 (US$1,43, 624) a week and a team of 15 nurses and physicians are looking after him.

Some unconfirmed reports had said the legend was paralyzed after the tragic ski accident.

Earlier this year Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm opened up about the champion. Calling him “warm-hearted” on the Formula 1 podcast “Beyond the Grid, she said, “he did not want this side of him to be public”

Kehm said the racing superstar’s condition need not be a matter of public interest.

On the racing front, the latest news on Formula 1 2019 highlights Ferrari owners’ optimism about winning championships in the remainder of the Formula 1 season.

The team has been upbeat about the serial victories for Charles Leclerc.

According to Ferrari boss Mattia Binotto the team had a strong pace at other tracks. That is a sure sign that it could challenge for wins anywhere.  Meanwhile, the Singapore Grand Prix will take place on September 22.
