Schumacher considering non-driving role with Mercedes 2 November, 2012 Nov.2 (GMM) Michael Schumacher has admitted that he is still weighing up an offer to stay with Mercedes in 2013 in a non-driving role. The seven time world champion’s race cockpit will from next year be filled by Lewis Hamilton. Schumacher is quoted by Sport Bild: “There is certainly the option to continue working with Mercedes. “After the season, we will sit down and discuss whether it makes sense for both sides,” added the 43-year-old.

U deserve better than Mercedes. Please stay away from them Mappu Michael plz stay away from the under performing Mercedes to keep your already damaged image. You should have not returned with this team. This is not a credible team to stay. Venezia It won’t make any sense at least from your side to stay with them. We Tifosi would rather have you at ferrari or any other team rather than that crap of a team! They will just use you and with that laud mouth there it really would be a disaster for you! Disgusted with 2012 Schumacher is Hamilton’s only hope. Regardless of massive hubris Lewis will never deliver the driver level tech know-how required for Merc to dig out. On the other hand, Michael would be working with Lauda and Hamilton with his massive PR entourage energetically branding him a nouveau team builder champion… I bet on Schumacher politely passing on this “opportunity”.
