Ferrari have called on fans to show Michael Schumacher their support on Friday, his 45th birthday.

As the seven-time World Champion continues his battle at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire, his former team Ferrari have called to attend a special event at the hospital.

"In these difficult days and on the occasion of his birthday the Scuderia Ferrari Clubs want to show their support for Michael Schumacher, organising tomorrow a silent and respectful event all in red at the Grenoble University Hospital Center," the team announced on its Facebook page.

Schumacher remains in intensive care at the French hospital after suffering severe head injuries in a skiing accident on Sunday morning.

His family released a statement on Thursday, thanking fans for the support already shown the German and his family.

"Following Michael's sking accident, we would like to thank the people from all around the world who have expressed their sympathy and sent their best wishes for his recovery. They are giving us great support," the statement read.

"We all know he is a fighter and will not give up."
