Seven-time F1 world champion Michael Schumacher is “conscious” after receiving pioneering treatment in Paris from a Jewish cardiologist, Le Parisien has claimed.

The athlete was spotted arriving at Georges-Pompidou Hospital on Monday riding in an ambulance registered in Geneva, the newspaper reported this week.

Anonymous hospital staff told the regional that Schumacher was “conscious,” but neither the former racing driver’s management nor the hospital confirmed reports when reached by JN.

Schumacher was put under the care of Dr Philippe Menasché, a French Jewish surgeon who performed in 2014 the world’s first embryonic cell transplant on a patient with heart failure, according to the report.

Schumacher has not been seen in public since he suffered head injuries in a skiing accident in Meribel in the French Alps in December 2013.

The former Ferrari star entered the annals of racing history with a record 91 Grand Prix wins.
