GRENOBLE, France (AP) — Doctors say they cannot predict the outcome for Michael Schumacher, the retired Formula One driver who suffered a serious head injury in a ski accident.
Chief anesthesiologist Jean-Francois Payen told reporters Monday that the seven-time champion is still in a medically induced coma.
He says the medical team was not yet able to talk about outcomes; they were focusing only on his current condition.
Schumacher arrived at the Grenoble hospital a day earlier already in a coma and immediately underwent brain surgery.
The doctors say he remains in critical condition.
