Even with his famous brother now out of the picture, Ralf Schumacher does not think he’ll be F1’s quickest German this year.
Among the German field of four race drivers, the 31-year-old Toyota driver said BMW’s Nick Heidfeld possesses the “biggest possibility” to shine for their country.
“Nick’s chances are better than mine,” Schumacher, who raced with BMW power at Williams between 2000 and 2004, told Sport Bild.
“Even us at Toyota have to admit that BMW did a really good job last year.”
Williams’ Nico Rosberg and Spyker rookie Adrian Sutil also represent Germany in F1.
