According to a new report, Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher was admitted to the Georges Pompidou European Hospital in Paris on Monday for a “secret treatment,” believed to be a stem cell transfusion.

The report added that Schumacher has apparently visited the hospital twice this year and was scheduled to receive the treatment this week, although didn’t cite sources.

It has been six years since the racer’s skiing accident, which left him with serious head injuries. Official health updates have been few and far between, with the most recent coming from FIA president Jean Todt, who said in July that Schumacher continues to recover. Bernie Ecclestone is also confident the F1 champion will be okay eventually.

Schumacher raced in F1 for 21 years, winning seven championships, famously for Ferrari with the then-dominant F2002. He retired after the 2012 season, with 91 wins to his name, 155 podiums, 77 fastest laps and 68 pole positions.
