Mark Webber says he would not be surprised to see retired seven time world champion Michael Schumacher on a formula one test circuit next year.
“You never say never,” the 30-year-old told reporters at the V8 Supercar race in Tasmania on Sunday, having completed his six-day sports challenge in the Australian state.
Webber, however, insisted that a race return for German Schumacher is unlikely.
“He just can’t help himself,” Mark continued. “He will drive again and do a bit of testing (but) I think that in terms of competition, that’s probably the last we will see of him.”
Webber said he had no regrets in deciding to switch from Williams to Red Bull for 2007, insisting that he is lucky to have emerged with an intact reputation following two dismal seasons at Grove.
He said it is not too late for him to make his mark in the sport.
Webber commented: “If it happens very, very quickly I have plenty of time (but) if it doesn’t then time might not work in my favour.”
