|Michael Schumacher will hopefully "one day be back with us" says manager Sabine Kehm|
The German is still being cared for at his palatial home on the shores of Lake Geneva by full-time rehabilitation staff.
Speaking at the opening of an exhibition of the German legend's career Kehm said: "He is the most successful driver in history and sometimes, on days like this, it is good to be reminded of it.
"Of course, Michael is not here and of course we miss him. We know what has happened and cannot change it.
"We must accept it and hope with everything we have that with continued support and patience he will one day be back with us.
"Racing was his life and no one would have liked to have been here more than him."
The update comes after former Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo claimed he had bad news over Schumacher's condition.
"I have news and unfortunately it is not good," Montezemolo told reporters without giving any further details.
"Life is strange. He was a fantastic driver and only had one accident with Ferrari in 1999", the former Ferrari chairman said.
The BBC report that Schumacher's spokesperson has declined to respond to Montezemolo's comments.
Back in December, Schumacher's manager branded claims her client was walking again as "irresponsible."
German magazine Bunte claimed Schumacher, a seven-time F1 world champion, was walking again in a front page exclusive published in the last few days.
The report featured a comment from an unnamed friend of Schumacher's, who said: "Michael is very thin. But he can once again walk a little with the help of his therapists.
"He manages to make a couple of steps. And he can also raise an arm."
But Kehm denied the reports.
She said at the time: "Unfortunately, we are forced by a recent press report to clarify that the assertion that Michael could move again is not true.
"Such speculation is irresponsible, because given the seriousness of his injuries, his privacy is very important for Michael.
"Unfortunately they also give false hopes to many involved people."
Schumacher was on holiday with wife Corinna and his two children when he hit his head on rocks in the ski resort of Mirabel on December 29, 2013.
He was in a medically induced coma at hospital in Grenoble for six months, before being transferred to Lausanne, and then in September 2014 back to his home town in Germany where he continues to receive medical treatment and rehabillitation.
His doctor spoke about his condition in December 2015.
