    News is sketchy. He's in hospital in Grenoble with what is described by what news we're getting as a serious head injury. Sky News say it is is unknown as to whether or not he was on or off Piste and it's said he was skiing alone not far from his chalet.

    Some credible-sounding reports saying minor injuries. Hope this is correct.

    German media have confusing reports. Some say minor injuries, some say major. Apparently he crashed into some kind of rock

    Not serious according to quotes on the BBC: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/25542340

    He was smart enough to be wearing a helmet. I wish everyone was that intelligent.

    Latest: Schumi was skiing off piste accompanied by his 14 year old son. The head injury is described as serious but the prognosis is good. No doubt the swift response of the resort's safety personnel and the emergency services will have had a profound effect on his survival prospects. Hats off to them.

    Update: Nothing really new about his condition. A "leading French neurologist" has arrived at the hospital and MS is under constant observation undergoing periodic scans.

    For the record I didn't like some of his antics on track but off track he's always been a decent bloke so I wish him well. Let's hope his care is as good as the swift and professional action exhibited by the folk's who rescued him and got him to the hospital.

    Is it a similar kind of head injury to Massa in 2009?

    Just reading the BBC was struck by some similarities - not that I think racing drivers all suffer similar injuries.

    None of the reports have given any precise detail on the exact nature of the injury. The consequences vary so much depending on what areas of the skull and brain have been struck and damaged. To complicate matters parts of the brain can be damaged by it's being shaken around in the skull so it's unlikely we will hear anything with any certainty for quite some time. Some types of injury, such as weakening of blood vessels, can lie undetected for days, weeks, even years.

    Obviously we should hope for the best but it is a concern that his condition is apparently not stable. My hopes and best wishes go out to him, his family and friends.

    Edit: BBC now report that an official statement from the hospital in Grenoble that he was in a coma on admission and that he has undergone some preliminary surgery. He is still in a coma and in critical condition.

    Autosport are reporting that MS is in a coma in a critical condition.

    This does sound very like Massa's injury. :(

    Mephistopheles That's a hoax story that has been running around the internet for quite some time.

    First I've heard of it but I'm glad to hear it is a hoax.

    Why do people write these sick things?

    Not the biggest Michael Schumacher fan by any means, but i really hope that he makes a full recovery from his skiing accident.
