M. Schumacher to attend July’s French GP

Fri, 27 April 2007, 10:42

Michael Schumacher will attend the French grand prix in July this year, organisers of the Magny Cours race announced on Thursday.

The seven time world champion’s visit, after he retired at the end of last season following a nearly 16-year career in formula one, is in connection with an agreement between the race and the charity ICM, which is also supported by Ferrari boss Jean Todt.

Schumacher, 38 and still an ‘advisor’ to the Ferrari team, won eight times at Magny Cours, including in 2006.

France may not, incidentally, be Schumacher’s first visit to a grand prix since racing for the last time in Brazil last October.

His spokeswoman Sabine Kehm said recently that the German could attend the upcoming Barcelona race, and Schumacher is also rumoured to be planning a trip to the Nurburgring later in July.
