Seven-times Formula One world champion Schumacher has not been home for almost nine months since embarking on a skiing holiday with his family in the French resort of Meribel.
It was there the accident took place, with Schumacher hitting his head on a rock in a fall that resulted in him being placed in a medically-induced coma for a number of months due to the nature of his head injuries.
Although Schumacher finally emerged from the coma in mid-June, so allowing him to be transferred to Lausanne, progress remains slow, albeit sufficient enough for him to head home.
Homeward bound: Schumacher has left hospital and will continue his rehabilitation at his Swiss home
On the mend: Schumacher came out of his coma in June after the skiing accident almost nine months ago
A statement from Schumacher's manager, Sabine Kehm, read: 'Michael's rehabilitation will continue from now on from home.
'Considering the severe injuries he suffered, progress has been made in the past weeks and months.
'There is still, however, a long and difficult road ahead.
'We would like to extend our gratitude to the entire team at CHUV Lausanne for their thorough and competent work.
'We ask the privacy of Michael's family continue to be respected, and that speculation about his state of health is avoided.'
