GRENOBLE, France -

 

Doctors say they cannot predict the outcome for Michael Schumacher, the retired Formula One driver who suffered a serious head injury in a ski accident.

Chief anesthesiologist Jean-Francois Payen told reporters Monday morning that the seven-time champion is still in a medically-induced coma. He says the medical team was not yet able to talk about outcomes; they were focusing only on his current condition.

Schumacher arrived at the Grenoble hospital a day earlier already in a coma and immediately underwent brain surgery.

The doctors say he remains in critical condition.
