Ferrari boss adamant that Schumacher will not return to the team
27 December, 2012
Schumacher, 43, is returning to retirement in 2013 as, at the end of his unsuccessful three-year comeback, Mercedes replaces him with Lewis Hamilton.
As for whether the great German – who won five consecutive titles for Ferrari, might enjoy a second F1 comeback, team president Montezemolo said: “That will not happen.
“It is a pity he did not win another race [in his comeback], nevertheless it was right of him to retire now,” the Italian added.
Montezemolo also played down new reports he might soon launch a bid to become prime minister of Italy.
“No, I would not want that,” he insisted. “Besides my family, Ferrari is my great love.”
