Bernie Ecclestone has hinted that Michael Schumacher may be looking to retire from F1 again.
Asked by Eddie Jordan at Spa-Francorchamps about the seven time world champion’s career spanning a 300 grands prix, the F1 chief executive answered: “I’m sorry that he’s leaving us not being a winner (with Mercedes), because he is a winner.”
The surprised former team owner Jordan, now working as a pundit for British BBC One television, asked 81-year-old Ecclestone if his comment means Schumacher is set to return to retirement at the end of the season.
“I don’t know, I don’t know,” Ecclestone quickly replied.
