Seven-times Formula 1 world champion Michael Schumacher "is still fighting" according to close family friend and FIA president Jean Todt.
It is now 22 months since Schumacher sustained severe brain injuries following a skiing accident in the French Alps.
After initially being placed in a medically-induced coma, Schumacher spent a number of months in intensive care in Grenoble hospital before finally regaining consciousness.
That allowed him to be moved to a hospital closer to his home in Lausanne last September, before then finally returning home in early September.
Since then little information has been revealed about the 46-year-old and his recovery.
Todt, speaking at a media briefing ahead of this weekend's Mexican Grand Prix, at least offered a small insight into Schumacher's latest situation.
Todt, who remains close to the Schumacher family, said: "It was interesting last week after Lewis [Hamilton] won the title for third time.
"You saw the figures [referring to Schumacher's seven championships]. I was very proud of what Michael achieved. Sometimes you tend to forget what he did.
"Michael is a close friend, his family is very close to me, and I'm very close to them as well.
"I see Michael very often, and Michael is still fighting, and we must keep fighting with the family."
