Schumacher dismisses rumours

FerrariFollowing rumours that he is about to become team manager, Schumacher has refuted the claims. “I am not going to all the races this year,” he said. “But I will go to some in Europe.”

His manager, Willi Weber has also brushed off the claims. “If Michael had wanted to have a full time job at race tracks, he would have stayed as a driver,” Weber explained.

Weber did go on to admit that Schumacher and Todt had had a lot of meetings at Maranello, Ferrari’s HQ, however it was more a reflection of Schumacher’s personality and knowledge than preparation for a new job.

Ferrari spokesman Luca Colajanni has also poured water on the fire. “Michael is clearly involved with the team, but this report is nonsense!” he exclaimed.
