Schumacher’s manager coy on MotoGP rumours

Michael Schumacher’s manager has fascinatingly refused to dismiss wild rumours that the retired seven time world champion might contest a MotoGP race in the future.

It was reported recently that the 39-year-old German was exploring the possibility of making a wild-card entry for the Mugello race, after impressing on the saddle of the Ducati in a couple of tests.

The rumour was played down by MotoGP boss Carmelo Ezpeleta and Ducati chief Livio Suppo, but Schumacher’s long time manager Willi Weber seemed more open about the idea in conversation with the German newspaper Bild.

“Anything is possible,” he said. “Michael has a lot of racing machines lying around at home and, sure, the motorbikes are often taken out by him for fun.

“But there are no concrete plans for a racing comeback,” Weber added.
