Doctors 'can't say Schumacher out of danger' (see previous). (ANSA) - Grenoble, December 31 - Doctors working to save Formula One legend Michael Schumacher after a life-threatening ski crash said Tuesday it was too early to say he was "out of danger". "It's too early to say what will happen, impossible to make predictions. It would be stupid to talk about it," they told a press conference at a Grenoble hospital.

"The patient remains fragile, the next few hours will be crucial.

"For now he is staying here, where he has the best treatment possible.

"Then we will decide whether moving him to Germany is possible".

Seven-time F1 champ Schumacher, who turns 45 on Friday, banged his head on a rock while skiing with his son in the French Alps Sunday and fell into a coma soon afterwards.
