Michael Schumcaher’s manager, Sabine Kehm, has rubbished reports that the German is evaluating his future in F1.

Earlier in the week, Italian publication Corriere dello Sport was widely cited as the source of quotes in which Schumacher reportedly stated that he had become a burden to Merc GP and that he would soon be considering whether or not to continue racing.

However, the seven-time World Champion’s management team have discredited the story.

“Since his return to F1, Michael has not spoken with anyone from the Corriere dello Sport,” Kehm told Bild.

“He is full of passion for the cause and continues to see the task of build something big at Mercedes as an exciting challenge.

“The fact that sometimes it doesn’t work only spurs him on. Someone who will soon celebrate their 20th anniversary in Formula One knows that perseverance can make a difference,” she added.
