The racing driver has been cared for since the accident by his wife Corinna, and the couple's two children Gina-Marie, 22, and Mick, 20.
This is the first update on Michael's health since Jean Todt, his former manager at Ferrari, revealed last year after visiting him to watch a Grand Prix on television that Schumacher was "still fighting".
"I'm always careful with such statements, but it's true. I saw the race together with Michael Schumacher at his home in Switzerland," he said.
"Michael is in the best hands and is well looked after in his house. He does not give up and keeps fighting."
However, his ex-boss did admit that despite not being in a vegetative state, Schumacher was unable to communicate in the same way as he had before the accident.
"His family is fighting just as much and of course our friendship cannot be the same as it once was just because there's no longer the same communication as before," Todt added.
