Doctors treating Michael Schumacher, for the brain injuries he sustained in a skiing accident in the French Alps, said on Tuesday that there was “a slight improvement in his condition after an overnight operation. But they said the 44-year-old former grand prix driver, the most successful in the century-long history of the sport, remained in critical condition, with extensive blood clots in his brain that were inaccessible to further surgery. The two-hour operation, at a hospital in the French city of Grenoble, was the second surgical procedure since Schumachers accident on Sunday. It was undertaken to remove a large hematoma, or blood clot, on the left outer side of his brain--the opposite side to Sundays surgery--the doctors said. Fan and fellow skiier, British tourist Richard Fish, said he felt it was "just a matter of luck" if skiiers hit rocks when skiing off-piste.
