"Please support our shared fight with Michael. It is important to me thatyou take the pressure off the doctors and the hospital so they can do their work," Corinna Schumacher said in a statement addressed "to the media".
"Please have faith in their statements and leave the hospital. Please also leave our family in peace," the wife of the Formula One legend said.
Last week, Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm deplored the tactics used by some journalists to try and catch a glimpse of the seven-time world champion in his room, reporting that one had dressed up as a priest to try and get in.
The German Federation of Journalists on Tuesday also echoed Corinna Schumacher's plea, urging reporters to use restraint while covering the former racer's plight.
