Schumi to drive the Nordschleife

Schumi to drive the Nordschleife

Michael Schumacher will be back behind the wheel of an F1 car on May 19th when the German drives the historic Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit.

The seven-time World Champion retired from Formula One for the second time at the end of last season but remains with Mercedes in an ambassadorial role.

Schumacher will drive the team's 2011 F1 car, the W02, around the legendary German track next month as part of the build-up to this year's Nurburgring 24 Hours.

"I have a lot of fond memories of the Nurburgring and am really looking forward to giving fans and friends from my home town of Kerpen - which is quite close to the Nurburgring - something to remember as they see me drive by," he said.

"But it will be a fantastic experience for me too, driving along the Nordschleife in a state-of-the-art Formula One Silver Arrow, particularly in view of the fact that the Silver Arrow's legend began here.

"Posting a lap in a modern Silver Arrow on the most beautiful and most testing circuit in the world, what a brilliant mix - it's every motor racing driver's dream!"
