Schumacher to DTM?

Rumours over the future of Ralf Schumacher continue over the revelation that the German driver has been invited to race in the German touring car series, DTM.

Hans-Werner Aufrecht, chairman of the organising body the ITR, has said he could see a on-track duel between former Formula 1 drivers Mika Hakkinen and Ralf Schumacher.

“DRM does need names such as those,” Aufrecht remarked. “I am convinced that, with a competitive car ar his disposal, Ralf Schumacher could play an important role in the DRM. No doubt he would be a good fit with us.”

Motor sport boss, Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich, is of the same opinion. “Without a doubt, Schumacher is a popular German F1 driver. It he comes and fully supports the series, he can be an asset for DRM.”

However, nothing is yet confirmed and Hans Mahr, Schumacher s manager, has said his focus is on prolonging Schumacher s career in Formula 1 for as long as possible, although he is not ruling out a move to DTM. “We will definitely not be so arrogant as to say that the DTM is uninteresting to us,” he explained.
