F1: Michael Schumacher in 'critical but stable' condition, says spokesperson

GRENOBLE, FRANCE - Michael Schumacher is still in a "critical but stable" condition in a French hospital, his spokesperson Sabine Kehm said on Saturday.

She added that any unofficial information circulating about his state was "pure speculation".

Kehm also said in a statement that a camera which the retired Formula One champion had been wearing on his helmet when he had his ski accident nearly a week ago was "voluntarily" given by the family to French investigators.

The comments came after former Formula One driver Philippe Streiff, a friend of Schumacher's, told Sky TV he had been told by surgeon and friend, Gerard Saillant, who is at the Grenoble hospital, that the German's life was "out of danger".

The retired motor racing great slammed his head on a rock while skiing off-piste on Sunday morning. He has been in an induced coma for six days since being transferred to a Grenoble hospital, where he has undergone two operations.
