2 September, 2012
Sep.2 (GMM) Michael Schumacher, contesting his 300th grand prix weekend, may have dropped the biggest hint yet about his plans for the future, after the seven time world champion explained at Spa on Thursday that he and Mercedes will only have decided the plan for 2013 “by October”.
On Friday, to mark his mentor, countryman and friend’s landmark 300th race, Sebastian Vettel painted a humorous picture of Schumacher racing his silver Mercedes through the legendary Eau Rouge.
When the Austrian broadcaster ORF showed Schumacher the painting, the 43-year-old grabbed a pen and wrote a caption: “2013″.
The German newspaper Bild am Sonntag said it “knows” that negotiations between Schumacher and Mercedes about next year are currently “underway”.
