Michael Schumacher has confirmed he will team up with Sebastian Vettel at the Race of Champions in Thailand in December.

The Formula One duo have paired up at the event for the past five years and they will be looking to retain the Nations Cup title for Team Germany.

The Esprit Arena in Dusseldorf Germany held the event for the past two years, but it will move to the Rajamangala Stadium, home of Thailand’s national football team, from December 15-16 this year.
