He has retired from formula one driving, and has not yet even been spotted at the scene of Sunday’s US grand prix, but Michael Schumacher is still one of the world’s most powerful celebrities.

Forbes magazine published its annual ‘Celebrity 100 Power List’ on Thursday, on which Ferrari’s 38-year-old Schumacher – now only an ‘advisor’ to the Maranello based team – ranked twenty fourth among mostly American icons including Oprah Winfrey and Tiger Woods.

Income is a primary factor in Forbes’ ranking system, but other factors including influence, internet hits and television and magazine cover are also taken into consideration.

Interestingly, Schumacher’s driving replacement this year, Kimi Raikkonen, ranked 41st.
