UPDATED: 10:21 a.m. Former world champion racing driver Michael Schumacher, who suffered severe head injuries in a weekend skiing accident in France, remained in stable condition Wednesday, his manager said.
Sabine Kehm said Schumacher had been carefully supervised overnight.
“His condition remains stable overnight and this morning,” she said.
Michael Schumacher, the most successful driver in Formula 1 history, is in critical condition after suffering “severe head trauma” in a skiing accident in the French Alps on Sunday, hospital officials said.
The 44-year-old German, who retired from the elite motorsport for the second and final time in 2012, fell and hit his head on a rock, said the director of the Meribel resort where Schumacher was skiing.
Schumacher was in a coma when he arrived at the University Hospital Center of Grenoble and required immediate brain surgery, hospital officials said in a written statement.
