Michael Schumacher's spokeswoman has broken the silence surrounding the seven-time F1 champion in response to reports in the German press about the condition of the 45-year-old.

A series of reports quoting experts had called into question how Schumacher could be expected to recover from the injuries he sustained in his skiing accident back in December.

Those reports came despite silence from Schumacher's management team and doctors treating him in Grenoble for nearly a fortnight, when Sabine Kehm urged caution about any reports not to have come from official sources.

In a fresh update, Kehm reiterated that point and revealed that Schumacher continues to be in a stable condition with his family confident in the work of the doctors treating his injuries.

"Unfortunately I have to repeat that any information regarding Michael's health not coming from the doctors treating him or from his management must be treated as pure speculation," Kehm said.

"I also repeat that Michael's family is very happy and confident with the work of the team of doctors treating Michael, and they trust them completely. Michael's condition is still considered as stable."
