Toyota should employ Michael Schumacher as a highly paid “advisor”, according to a former racer.
Jochen Mass, who was Germany’s top grand prix racer before Schumacher hit the scene, said the Japanese squad need more than Michael’s brother Ralf and a mammoth budget to succeed in formula one.
“(At Toyota) too much money is senselessly spent,” Mass, 60, told the EUROSPORT MotorMagazin.
He added: “Perhaps they should give Michael Schumacher $50 million to be their advisor. Maybe he can make something happen for them.”
Toyota debuted in F1 in 2002 and is yet to win a race. Schumacher, who turned 38 on Wednesday, will be used by Ferrari as an “assistant” to team chief Jean Todt this year.
