After ten day of the serious skiing accident suffered by Michael Schumacher on the slopes of Méribel, prosecutors Albertville made Wednesday morning a full update on the investigation last week.

Patrick Quincy, prosecutor in Albertville, has confirmed a number of recently published information. He insisted that this press conference was held “that are not more or disseminated false information about I’d kept.’s Family members also ask as to preserve their peace.”

“With regard to the investigation, it is progress,” he said. ” We conducted numerous hearings We also made findings on the scene and made scenarios We have carefully reviewed the film made with the camera mounted on the helmet remains some act to perform: . . . Transcription the film frame by frame, to determine the precise location of the accident, the distance from the track, and possibly speed. ”

“This film is perfectly readable and confirms the evidence we had already. We will take this film to find a club situation. We will precisely what was the route followed by Mr. Schumacher. ”

It was also clarified that the time recorded by the camera mounted on the helmet film does not allow confirming that Michael Schumacher was at this time to assist another skier.

On the hypothetical existence of a second film of the accident, which is owned by a German tourist, the Prosecutor was very reserved. “To date we have not received any message whatsoever. I remain very reserved, even skeptical about the issue,” he said.

“I also believe that we have to give, within the framework of this investigation, the same investigation when serious incidents occur.”

Patrick Quincy then returned precisely to the facts as established about the accident suffered by Michael Schumacher: “On December 29, at 11 am, Mr. Schumacher down the track to a junction between two tracks, one red and one blue. Follows the red track in left border, crossed milestones and is therefore off-piste. It varies between 3 and 6 meters from the edge of the marked track. He loses his balance on a rock outcrops and drop the body forward. He hits a rock three meters below. This rock is 8 meters from the runway. Lifeless It is on the ground, and its position is then to 9 meters from the edge of the track. ”

On the speed at which Michael Schumacher would have fallen, the Gendarmerie Commander Stephane Bozon has illuminated, specifying that it was currently impossible to calculate precisely this speed.

“Mr. Schumacher, obviously, is a very good skier,” he has noted. “He played on a gently sloping terrain with a velocity induced by the slope, without necessarily seeking to reduce this speed, with little amplitude and few curves. Velocity, we cannot estimate and issue a specific number, but it is the speed of a good skier on a steep little party. ”

The equipment used by Michael Schumacher is not implicated. Investigators also confirmed that the helmet he wore was no longer in one piece after the fall.

Finally, the prosecutor dismissed for now ill runway lighting, explaining that Michael Schumacher could not ignore it then was outside of the track. “The findings that we were able to demonstrate that the markup standards are met.’s Investigation did not reveal that there were breaches of obligations imposed on operators of ski areas,” he insisted.
