Grenoble - French prosecutors will brief journalists on Wednesday on their investigation into Michael Schumacher's life-threatening skiing accident.
The press conference will be held on Wednesday at 12:00 SA time in the Alpine town of Albertville, local prosecutor Patrick Quincy confirmed.
Schumacher has been in a medically induced coma since the accident on December 29.
Investigators are focusing on the retired racer's speed when he fell and slammed his head on a rock on a small off-piste section of the Meribel ski resort, prompting his evacuation by helicopter to the Alpine city of Grenoble.
Prosecutors are also looking at whether the limits of the ski runs next to the accident site were correctly marked and whether the rock in question was lying close enough to the piste to require some kind of protection or signage.
They are also examining whether the safety releases on Schumacher's skis operated properly in a probe aimed at determining responsibility for the accident.
In the most recent update on Schumacher's health, his spokeswoman said on Saturday that the Formula One legend remained in a "critical but stable" condition.
