GRENOBLE, France -

Michael Schumacher's manager says the retired Formula One champion's condition is stable and has not changed since doctors said he showed small signs of improvement.

Schumacher, who turns 45 on Friday, suffered critical head injuries when he fell and struck a rock Sunday while skiing. He has undergone brain surgery twice since the accident.

Schumacher's manager, Sabine Kehm, speaking in English to reporters on Wednesday, said the seven-time champion was "stable over the night."

In front of the Grenoble hospital where he is being treated, she said: "The good news for today is ... there's no significant changes." She adds that the situation remains critical.

A day earlier, doctors said he showed signs of improvement after a second surgery but refused to provide any prognosis.
