Schumi set for Merc discussions

Schumi set for Merc discussions

Michael Schumacher's career as a Formula One driver may be over, but he could continue his relationship with Mercedes.

Three years after coming out of retirement to drive for the Brackley squad, the seven-time World Champion has decided to call it quits for a final time and he bowed out with a seventh-place finish at the Brazilian GP on Sunday.

Although Schumacher is determined to enjoy life away from F1, he has hinted he could take up a role at Merc.

"Obviously I will be in discussions with Mercedes to see what we're going to do together," he is quoted as saying by Autosport.

"There are good ideas and good options. I'm pretty sure my calendar will easily be filled up."

He added: "I've certainly been counting down the days to the life I have next to Formula 1, and I look forward to this life.

"I don't have concrete future plans. I obviously have partners I've been working with during the F1 time and I'll keep on working with them in the time after.

"Lots more time will be dedicated to the family, and if there is some time left over afterwards then we'll see."
