GRENOBLE - Doctors gave a grim assessment of Michael Schumacher's head injuries on Tuesday, providing no prognosis for the Formula One driving great after his skiing accident in the French Alps.
Schumacher was placed in a medically induced coma to relieve pressure on his brain, which suffered bruising and bleeding when the retired seven-time world champion fell and struck a rock on Sunday while skiing during a family vacation.
"We cannot predict the future for Michael Schumacher," said Jean-Francois Payen, the doctor in charge of Grenoble University Hospital's intensive care unit.
"He is in a critical state in terms of cerebral resuscitation," said Payen.
The 44-year-old German driver achieved a record 91 race wins.
