Ralf Schumacher To Leave Motorsport – Possibly For Yacht Racing
Ralf Schumacher looks set to bow out of competitive motorsport altogether, and start a new career around yacht racing according to an article in the Bild today.
The 33 year old, who left F1 at the end of 2007 after a largely fruitless F1 career with Williams and later Toyota, leading to him having just 6 race victories, went on to race in DTM in 2008. His DTM career has been unsuccessful also, and it looks like he has little interest in a new contract for 2009.
“Nobody should be worried about me.Apart from race driving I have enough projects to keep me busy.” Schumacher told Bild
That project appears to be an entrance into yacht racing with his friend and boat builder Albert Drettman.
