17 October, 2012
Oct.17 (GMM) The motorsport world could be set to bid farewell another member of the Schumacher family, as Ralf Schumacher, the former Williams and Toyota Formula One driver, and younger brother to Michael has opened the door to retirement as he looks to finish this year’s German touring car ‘DTM’ series almost dead last.
The 37-year-old, whose more famous brother Michael is returning to retirement at the end of this year’s F1 calendar, also drives for Mercedes’ works team, but in the F1 context.
“I’m going to do the last race and then think about what my future looks like,” Schumacher is quoted by the Kolner Express newspaper ahead of this weekend’s Hockenheim finale.
He is third to last in the 2012 DTM standings, having scored just 8 points compared to teammate Jamie Green’s 109.
Ralf Schumacher won 6 grands prix during his 182 grand prix career between 1997 and 2007.
