    Doesn't sound good. You wonder how much of his mind will be left if he does pull through.

    Apparently his condition has really deteriorated, going from "serious but not life threatening" to "critical" in a few hours.

    Shortly after the news broke this afternoon, it sounded like it was being played down as not as serious as first reported. Surprised to hear he's now in a coma.

    Is there a link for the official press release from the hospital or Schumi management? A lot of the updates seem to be coming from 'French reporters' so they're hardly credible.

    As a McLaren fan i never liked him while he was in the car, always seemed like a decent friendly bloke out of it

    Terrible news, hope he pulls through :(

    Shocked when I read this. He's such a champ. Watching Schumi win race after race is a huge part of my childhood. Hope he pulls through. :(

    Shit, like others I'd heard it wasn't life-threatening earlier so this is a bit of a shock. Fingers crossed he improves soon.

    Welcome to Manchester reception committee
    A friend of mine, a few years back, actually drove to hospital after a fall. He collapsed as soon as he got there and was in a coma for two weeks, but recovered pretty much intact. Mild epilepsy is now the only real symptom. So it can go from no obvious problem, to life threatening, to fears of brain damage to OK again.

    All you can do is wish him and his family the best of luck.

    I swear racing drivers seem to do more harm to themselves pursuing other activities to feed the speed drug than actually on the racing track.

    They just crave the danger, they must do.
    They put their lives on the line every time they race, they need the same danger in what ever they do.

    When he returned to F1 after his first retirement I kinda had a feeling that something bad was going to happen to him on the track... but skiing? It seems a bit surreal.

    That's just crazy so many years driving one of the fastest machines on earth and to get injured skiing.

    Got an example? I don't know if modern drivers would be allowed to do something too risky. I heard Hamilton got a single out or something last week. If he's singing, it might be dangerous...

    Button/Webber do cycling (Button doing triathlons and such). Webber broke his leg or something cycling i think. Kubica rallying (okay, still in a car).

    Admittedly, it was another form of racing rather than another activity altogether, but it happened to Kubica who was an F1 driver.

    Aye, that's true. Actually surprising BMW let him do that at all. I think decades ago F1 drivers used to drive other cars as well. Happens far less nowadays.

    Was it a medically-induced coma or a natural one?

    Raikkonen used to do rallying as well, even before he left Ferrari originally. Snowmobile racing as well.

    I don't want to wake up tomorrow morning and find out he's dead. He was my childhood hero.

    The Guardian already has a weird article, very nearly referring to him in the past. It isn't looking good.

    That's more positive isn't it, in that they induced it while carrying out the surgery? It kind of reminds me of Senna's death. I remember seeing on ceefax he was airlifted to hospital but then it accelerated quickly and the next thing he was dead.

    Not surprising at all to wait to 1000h GMT. Gives docs a chance to do rounds, see new CT scans, check blood results. That is perfectly fine.

    This guy on twitter is very informative/explaining everything in very simple language
