The Grenoble hospital issued a statement today confirming that Michael Schumacher remains in a stable but critical condition, and underlined that there will be no more information for the time being.

The statement read: “The clinical state of Michael Schumacher is considered as stable and is constantly monitored by the medical treatments that are administered to him. However the medical team responsible underlines that they will not stop to consider Michael’s condition as critical.

“The privacy of the patient demands that we are not going into details of his treatment, and this is why we do not plan any press conferences, nor [to] give out any press releases, for the time being.

“We again insistently ask you to respect the medical secret [sic] and to stick to the information given by the medical team in charge of the patient, or his management, as this is the only valid information.”

Meanwhile the French authorities are still looking into the circumstances of Schumacher’s accident.
