Michael Schumacher's wife believes the injured Formula One star is on the mend, describing his improvements as encouraging.

Corinna Schumacher has offered her first public comments since her husband, 47, suffered a serious brain injury in a December skiing accident.

''It's getting better, slowly certainly, but in any case it's improving,'' she told the German women's magazine Neue Post.

The former Formula One champion's improvements have come since emerging from his coma and being moved to a Swiss hospital last month.

Schumacher spent 170 days in hospital in the French city of Grenoble after the accident.

Last month the seven-time champion was flown to a Laussanne hospital that specialises in dealing with brain injuries.
