Gerhard Berger injured in skiing fall
Former F1 driver Gerhard Berger has crashed whilst skiing in the Kitzbuhel district in his native Austria.
Ten weeks into Michael Schumacher's coma, Austrian reports including the Kronen Zeitung newspaper said former Ferrari and McLaren driver Berger was hospitalised late last week after crashing at the Skiwelt Wilder Kaiser Brixental resort.
APA news agency said the 54-year-old was released from the St Johann hospital on Sunday, where he had been airlifted from the scene with a broken upper arm and operated on.
"He's very good. He is on the road to recovery," a hospital spokesperson said.
Reports said Berger tripped on a forest road and struck a concrete drainage pipe.
