Michael Schumacher has ruled out returning to Formula One as a pundit, saying "mooching through the paddock" is not his thing.
Schumacher retired from Formula One at the end of last season after a difficult three years with Mercedes.
However, the German has no plans to return to the paddock in any capacity, especially as a "so-called" television expert.
"Being a so-called expert mooching through the paddock would not be my thing," he told Bild am Sonntag.
"First, Formula 1 is so fast that even I am already far away so far that it is often lost in a fog and that's not me.
"And secondly, I would again not be with my family - I might as well be driving and that would be more fun."
The seven-time World Champion also weighed in on the season ahead, saying that "no team really stood out" for him in pre-season testing.
As such the German is expecting a closely-fought campaign that could mimic last year's spate of different winners.
"We had seven different winners in 2012 in the first seven races. And I think that's a trend for this year," he added.
