Schumacher unclear on future

Seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher is unclear as to his role within the Ferrari team. Schumacher, who retiring from racing at the end of the 2006 season, has attended several grand prix this season, however his official role at the scarlet-clad team has yet to be made public.

Speaking to Autosport, Schumacher said, “Ferrari and myself have not found a clear line yet, but we do not see ourselves under pressure to finalise something. I have to admit that my knowledge is restricted by time I would have to freshen up constantly in order to be of help. I see many former drivers who try to comment on what is going on but they are struggling. They are simply no longer deep in the business any more.

“I really cannot say that have I found fresh challenges that would excite me so far. At Ferrari, there are constantly new opportunities coming up but I could not pinpoint what exactly would be right for me. There is one thing I adore however helping to develop road cars. That is a lot of fun and I believe that I can be of help.”
