Seven-time F1 world champion Michael Schumacher remains critical but stable following his skiing accident last weekend, his management has reiterated.

In a statement to the media, Schumacher's spokeswomen, Sabine Kehm said: "Michael's condition remains critical but stable. 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. The family cares only for Michael's health."

"In consultation with the doctor's treating Michael, it is not expected that there will be any press conference before Monday," she added.

Her comments come in the wake of reports that he was now 'out of danger', with Philippe Strieff, a friend of the 45-year-old and himself a former F1 driver, telling reporters that on Friday.

Meanwhile, Kehm said the camera attached to the helmet worn by Schumacher in the accident was handed to the authorities voluntarily.

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

"We ask you to respect the continued privacy of the family."
