Schumi still in danger, manager confirms

Michael Schumacher's manager confirmed that the seven-time Formula One Drivers' Championship winner is not out of danger yet after suffering 'severe head trauma' during last Sunday's skiing accident.

Earlier on the day, the medical team treating the German racing legend confirmed that the 45-year-old was "considered as stable" but stressed that he remained "critical".

Following the comments from doctors at the Grenoble University Hospital, it was reported in the German press that the 45-year-old was out of danger, but Schumacher's long-time spokesperson and manager Sabine Kehm quashed the suggestions.

"I can confirm Michael's condition can be considered stable. I can't confirm to have stated his life is out of danger," she said.

The French prosecutors that are investigating the accident also confirmed on Monday that the press will be addressed on Wednesday regarding the status of the inquiry into the causes of the accident.
