Schumacher – ‘I miss racing’

Mon, 26 November 2007, 11:20

Little more than a year after retiring from formula one, Michael Schumacher has admitted to missing the competition of racing.

The German newspaper Bild describes the 38-year-old seven time world champion as a ‘turbo-retiree’ after winning the international kart race hosted by his former Ferrari teammate Felipe Massa in Brazil.

Before that, he stunned the racing world by going quickest over two days at the Barcelona test, and he is set to return to the F1 cockpit at Jerez next week.

Later in December, he will team up with fellow German Sebastian Vettel for the Race of Champions at London’s Wembley Stadium.

“I do miss racing; the competition,” Schumacher is quoted as telling the Italian sports newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“It is only natural. A year has passed even since I raced in karts. I adore it,” he said.

Schumacher is understood to have already accepted Massa’s invitation to return to Florianopolis for the kart race next year.

He told Bild: “I have always loved racing. And the love is still there.”
