Sutil not sure Schumacher should return
14 December, 2009
Dec.14 (GMM) Adrian Sutil is not sure it is the right thing for Michael Schumacher to launch a full-time return to formula one.
It is now strongly rumoured that the seven time world champion, who turns 41 early next month, will race next year with Mercedes’ newly-rebranded works team.
But fellow German Sutil, who drives for Force India, is not sure the news is all good.
“Sure, on the one hand it will be cool, but he did decide to end his career (in 2006),” said the 26-year-old.
“I think at some point you should just stop and say, ‘I leave it at that. I’ve made my decision to give the young drivers a chance’,” Sutil is quoted as saying by the SID news agency.
Ferrari spokesman Luca Colajanni told Express newspaper that he did not know if Schumacher has signed the Mercedes deal.
Britain’s Mirror newspaper said the German is set to earn 22m euros in 2010.
