Schu-Kimi for Ferrari in 2007 – report

Wed, 16 August 2006, 12:57

Yet another racing publication has claimed inside knowledge of Michael Schumacher’s decision, due to be publicly announced at Monza, about his future in formula one beyond 2006.

Recent reports suggested that the 37-year-old German was set to retire, but ‘Auto Bild Motorsport’ – citing ‘sources’ – now adds to claims in Britain that Schumacher is in fact due to sign a new contract for 2007.

The seven time world champion’s Ferrari deal will also include an ‘option’ for 2008, the German publication added, with Kimi Raikkonen as his new joint number-one teammate.

With Schumacher-Raikkonen in the race cockpits, Maranello incumbent Felipe Massa is most likely to slip into a highly-paid role as a Ferrari test driver.
