Formula One World Championship, Rd 13, Italian Grand Prix, Qualifying Day, Monza, Italy, Saturday 10 September 2011.Dec.27 (GMM) Ferrari boss Luca di Montezemolo has ruled out a return to the Italian team for their former hero Michael Schumacher.

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.”

  • Not Bernie

    Fairly unlikely. Ex-drivers don’t make good team owners / managers. I hope Schumacher is smart enough to realise this (I’m fairly sure he is).

    Whatever Schumacher decides to do he should just get on with it. No worries about whatever anybody else thinks. Well, as long as it’s not Indy car!
