F1 legend Michael Schumacher continues to remain in critical condition but is stable, the German’s agent revealed after the seven-times champion has been battling for his life having suffered brain injuries in a skiing accident in the French resort of Meribel.
“Michael’s condition remains critical but stable. We would like to clearly stress that any information regarding Michael’s health not coming from the doctors treating him or from his management must be treated as invalid and pure speculation,” Schumacher’s agent, Sabine Kehm, revealed in a statement on Saturday.
Kehm also confirmed that the helmet camera Schumacher was wearing when his head hit a boulder has been given to the accident investigators to aid in the investigation process.
Kehm’s comments will come as a sigh of relief for Schumacher fans around the world, many of whom had gathered outside Grenoble hospital last evening to show their support. Former Formula One driver Philippe Streiff, a friend of Schumacher’s, also eased some of the nervousness when he told the Sky Network that he had been told by Doctor Gerard Saillant of the Grenoble hospital that the former F1 champ’s life was “out of danger”.
The former Ferrari driver, who endured a disappointing comeback with Mercedes, suffered a nasty injury to his head while skiing off-piste on Sunday morning.
The former F1 driver has been in an induced coma for the last week, and doctors at the Grenoble hospital have already operated on his brain twice.
The theory is that Schumacher lost control after colliding with a boulder which had been concealed by snow that had fallen the night before and was ‘catapulted’ headfirst into three other rocks.
Further details on his health is unlikely to be revealed until a press-conference takes place, which has been ruled out until monday.
Schumacher is F1’s most successful driver with 91 victories and 7 world titles to his name.
