Schuey Admits He Did Consider F1 Return
Michael Schumacher, the most successful Formula One driver of all time has admitted in an interview with German newspaper Bild that he was offered, and indeed considered a return to an F1 race seat.
In the past Schumacher, who won 7 World Championships in F1, has unequibically denied he has or is considering a return to the sport he left in 2006.
The Ferrari legend was offered a blank-cheque by Luca di Montezemolo at the end of 2006 to try and make the German stay at the team, but Schumacher rejected it. He has since returned to do some testing and advisory work with Ferrari.
“I have had a few interesting possibilities,” he explained “but I rejected them all almost immediately.”
Schumacher, who turned 40 on the 3rd of January, admitted that if he returned he would want to win, but could still not see himself devoting his entire life to the sport again like he did in his illustrious 15 year career.
“…so I would only be racing for the sake of it or for fun and, no, that’s not my thing,” he said.
