Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher’s condition was stable, his manager Sabine Kehm said Wednesday. But still he undergo unconscious after brain injury suffered in a skiing accident on last Sunday.

The manager told reporters that his condition has not changed since doctors said he showed small signs of development on Tuesday, following his second brain surgery.

Who, was admitted to the University Hospital of Grenoble, following a skiing accident which occurred in Meribel in the last Sunday. The seven-time F1 champion has since undergone two brain operations and remains in a medically induced coma.

“The good news for today is … there’s no significant change,” Kehm told reporters gathered outside the Grenoble hospital.

“However, it is still very early, and the situation overall is critical. Everything can change immediately,” she added.

The French media reported that, doctors have refused to give a prognosis for Schumacher, saying they are focused on his immediate care. They are trying to reduce swelling in his brain by keeping him in a coma and lowering his body temperature to between 34 and 35 degrees Celsius (93.2 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit).

Kehm said Schumacher was surrounded by his family — including his wife, daughter and son — and that there is always somebody with him. “They are trying to support him by being by his side,” Kehm said.

His accident has drawn immense media attention, and Kehm confirmed Wednesday that earlier in the week security at the hospital stopped a journalist who was posing as a priest from approaching Schumacher.

“Security got him before he got close,” she said.

Schumi, as his fans affectionately call him, was famously aggressive on the track and no less intense off-hours. In retirement, he remained an avid skier, skydiver and horseback rider. Kehm said the Schumacher family traditionally spends Christmas and New Year holidays at Meribel, where they own a chalet, and to celebrate the German racer’s birthday.
