No Schumacher statement today
2 January 2014 – Michael Schumacher’s spokesperson Sabine Kehm has said there will be no statement issued on Thursday on the state of the German’s health.
The seven-time F1 world champion remains in a 'stable' but 'critical' condition after he sustained a serious head injury in a skiing accident in the French Alps on Sunday morning.
Speaking on Wednesday outside the hospital in Grenoble, Kehm said: “Michael's condition has been supervised all the night and remained stable over the night and also now. The good news for today [Wednesday] is that we do not have to hold a press conference because there are no significant changes.”
Meanwhile, three-time F1 world champion, Niki Lauda has said he is praying for the 44-year-old, who will turn 45 on Friday.
“I believe there is someone up there trying to help in this situation,” Lauda told reporters. “He decides things we cannot understand. I find it completely shocking and unexplainable why this great driver, who won seven championships in over 300 races and stayed alive, could have something like this happen to him.
“I pray to god that it will all end well.”
