Schumacher still in critical but stable condition - was wearing helmet camera

As the F1 legend's condition remains unchanged, a few details surrounding the accident begin to emerge.

Michael Schumacher's management has urged against speculative reports regarding the seven-time World Champion's condition and details about his skiing accident last week.

The driver's manager Sabine Kehm issued a statement on Saturday morning explaining that updates about Schumacher's health would only be given through the hospital or herself.

"Michael's condition remains critical but stable," said Kehm's statement.

"We would like to clearly stress that any information regarding Michael's health not coming from the doctors treating him or from his management must be treated as invalid and pure speculation.

"In consultation with the doctors treating Michael, it is not expected there there will be any press conference before Monday."

Kehm also addressed reports that Schumacher was wearing a camera on his helmet when the accident happened off-piste at the Méribel skiing resort in the French Alps.

"Michael's helmet camera was voluntarily given to the investigating authorities by the family," she said. "That this should have been done against the wishes of the family is untrue."

Earlier reports suggested that Schumacher's family had unwillingly handed over the camera. What footage, if usable, is present on the camera has not been made public at this time.
