FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Michael Schumacher's manager says the former Formula One champion remains in stable condition following a skiing accident that left him with severe head injuries and in a coma since Dec. 29.

The statement from manager Sabine Kehm does not mention the word "critical" for the first time since describing the seven-time champion's condition.

Schumacher has been in an induced coma in a Grenoble hospital since the Dec. 29 crash in the French Alps.

Kehm says 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."
