(Motor racing) Schumacher critical but improving
(01-07 11:51)

There has been a “slight improvement'' in retired Formula One driver Michael Schumacher's condition, a source said on Monday, eight days after a skiing accident left him with life-threatening injuries in a hospital in France.
Schumacher remains in a critical condition in hospital where he has been in a medically induced coma since the accident on December 29 in the French ski resort of Meribel, where he owns a chalet.
But there are small signs of improvement and his loved-ones hope that he will pull through, the source told the German sports news agency SID, an AFP subsidiary, on condition of anonymity.
Earlier, doctors treating Schumacher said he remained in a stable but critical condition.
“The clinical state of Michael Schumacher is considered as stable and is being constantly monitored as he receives medical treatment,'' a statement from Grenoble's University Hospital said.
“However, the medical team in charge of his care underlines that they continue to consider Michael's condition as critical.''
French prosecutors meanwhile said they would tomorrow brief journalists on their investigation into Schumacher's accident. A press conference will be held 11am local time in the Alpine town of Albertville, local prosecutor Patrick Quincy told AFP.
