JOHANNESBURG - Michael Schumacher's family has reportedly provided French investigators with the helmet camera the Formula One legend wore during a skiing incident in which he was critically injured.

Schumacher has been in a medically induced coma since last Sunday, when he fell and struck his head on a rock.

The Formula One great, affectionately known as Schumi by fans, is the most successful F1 driver in history, racking up a record 91 race wins.

He retired in 2012.

Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm says his condition remains critical but stable.

CNN's Christina Macfarlane visited the scene of the accident.

"This whole area here is quite chopped up, it's icy in places and it's bumpy. It's not exactly the easiest ski ride.

"I've skiid a lot of off-piste in my time but that was really quite difficult and tricky in places. As I was skiing, the snow was deep and I could feel some of the rocks."
