Michael Schumacher is in a “critical” condition following his skiing accident in France earlier today, according to a statement issued by the hospital.
Schumacher suffered a head injury after striking a rock when he fell while skiing off piste in Meribel. He was wearing a helmet, and initial reports suggested that his condition was not serious, but later he was transported from a local medical facility to a major hospital in Grenoble.
Shortly before 2300 French time, and some 12 hours after his fall, the hospital said that “was suffering a serious brain trauma with coma on his arrival.”
Top surgeon Gerard Saillant, a close friend of both Schumacher and Jean Todt, travelled from Paris earlier today, while Ross Brawn is also reported to have flown to France.

Is this his confirmed condition? The updates have gone from dire to non-serious and now critical with a coma. If true this is awful news. I don’t know what to say. Damn…9
10$ says he’ll be fine.
