Even as former Formula One champion Michael Schumacher battles with life since his skiing accident in December 2013, former F1 chief doctor Dr Gary Hartstein has some very bad news for his fans. While doctors work overtime to wake up Schumacher from coma, Hartstein has warned that his fans should be 'ready for the worst'

According to a report on the Independent, Hartstein wrote on his personal blog that, the longer the process of revival takes, it becomes less and less likely that Michael will recover.

"The longer one remains in a vegetative state, the less the likelihood of emerging, and the higher the chances of severe ramifications if the patient does in fact emerge," he wrote. (Key events since Schumacher's ski accident)
