"The investigation into the causes and consequences of the
December 29 skiing accident of Michael Schumacher ... has been
closed on February 12," Albertville prosecutor Patrick Quincy said
in a statement.
"No person has been found guilty of any violation."
Schumacher, 45, has undergone two operations since sustaining brain
injuries after hitting his head on a rock while skiing off-piste in
the French Alps resort of Meribel.
The seven times world champion was in a stable but critical
condition until late January and doctors in the Grenoble hospital
have started waking him up progressively by lowering his sedation.
The investigators tried to determine if any third party was
responsible for his accident and if Schumacher was aware that he was
skiing beyond the marked-out zone.

"Signaling, demarcation and information given on the limits of the
piste were in line with the French standards," the prosecutor said.
Schumacher, who quit the sport in 2012 after a disappointing
three-year comeback with Mercedes following an earlier retirement
from Ferrari at the end of 2006, won a record 91 grands prix.
