French prosecutors investigating the causes into Michael Schumacher’s skiing accident say the Former Formula one Champion was off piste and did not try to reduce his speed just before he fell.

Police investigators say they are still continuing to review footage from a camera attached to Schumacher’s helmet at the time of the crash.

‘‘He was going at a speed that was in accordance with the slope. But he did not make any special turns to reduce his speed,’‘ said investigator Stépahne Bozon from the French Gendarmerie.

The former racing driver hit his head on rocks in the resort of Meribel on the 27 December and remains in an induced coma.

Doctors say his condition is still critical but stable.

Yesterday, Schumacher’s wife called on the media camped outside the Grenoble clinic where her husband is being treated to leave and let doctors work in peace.
