Michael Schumacher's manager has confirmed that the Formula One great's family has provided French investigators with the camera he wore on his helmet during a skiing incident in which he was critically injured.

Manager Sabine Kehm said in an email Saturday that Schumacher's condition remains critical but stable. He has been in a medically induced coma since Sunday, when he fell while skiing and struck his head on a rock.

Kehm also sought to play down media speculation about Schumacher's health and requested respect for the family's privacy.

Several of Schumacher's family members arrived at the Grenoble hospital earlier Saturday.
