       === Schumacher's condition listed as 'stable' in latest update ===
 
 (SportsNetwork.com)  -  Formula  One  legend  Michael  Schumacher  remains  in
 "stable"  condition  almost three weeks  after his near-fatal skiing accident,
 his manager, Sabine Kehm, said in a statement released on Friday.
 
 Schumacher,  a  seven-time F1 world champion  and winner of 91 grand prix, has
 been  in a medically-induced coma at Grenoble University Hospital in Grenoble,
 France  since suffering  a traumatic  brain injury  when his  head hit  a rock
 during  the accident on  Dec. 29. The incident occurred at a ski resort in the
 French Alps.
 
 The  45-year-old Schumacher had been listed in critical condition, but nowhere
 in  Kehm's  latest statement did  the word  "critical" appear. Kehm noted that
 "Michael's  family  is very happy  and confident with the  work of the team of
 doctors treating Michael, and they trust them completely."
 
 Kehm made another plea to the media not to speculate on Schumacher's condition
 or treatment.
 
 "Unfortunately  I have  to  repeat that  any  information regarding  Michael's
 health not coming from the doctors treating him or from his management must be
 treated as pure speculation," Kehm said.
