The fans of Michael Schumacher have been thanked by his family for the great support they have given during his tough time while suffering from an injury.
"We all know he is a fighter and will not give up," reported BBC citing the family in an online statement.
Schumacher, who turns 45 Friday, remains in a stable but critical condition, his manager said earlier.
The most successful F1 racer in history is in a medically induced coma in hospital in Grenoble, after a skiing accident in the French Alps. He was skiing off-piste when he fell and hit his head Sunday. His helmet cracked on impact after hitting a rock.
