Michael Schumacher’s manager, Sabine Kehm, released an email update on Friday that says the seven-time Formula One World Champion remains in stable condition at University Center Hospital in Grenoble, France. This marks the first time Schumacher’s condition has not been labeled as “critical” since his skiing accident on Dec. 29 that has left him in a medically-induced coma.

This latest statement comes in response to some speculative, unconfirmed reports that have occurred over the last week or so.

“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,” said Kehm, via Sky Sports. She has had to make this declaration previously.

“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.”

    This is good news.

    Michael’s recovery is following the proper steps.

    It’s just a time for patience.

    As always our thoughts and hopes for Michael’s full recovery and our wishes for nothing for good news for him and his family are extended.
