MICHAEL SCHUMACHER’S SPOKESPERSON Sabine Kehm has revealed the Formula One star is in a stable condition.

Doctors at the Grenoble hospital, where Schumacher, 44, is being treated for a serious head injury, have deigned not to hold a press conference as they are satisfied that there is no significant changes with his condition.

The German has been at the hospital in the south of France since he was airlifted there on Sunday afternoon. Schumacher suffered ‘heavy brain trauma’ after hitting his head on a rock while skiing off-piste at the Meribel resort.

Kehm told reporters this morning that Schumacher remained in a stable condition and doctors were continuing to monitor him closely. She said:

The good news for today is we do not have the feeling to have a press conference because we have no significant changes.”

Schumacher, a seven-time F1 champion, has had two operations since he was admitted to the hospital with a blood clot removed from his brain on Monday. During Tuesday’s press briefing chief doctor Professor Jean-Francois Payen stated Schumacher was still critical but added his condition had ‘improved slightly’.
