Michael Schumacher won’t yet commit to making a decision on whether or not he will remain in Formula 1 beyond the end of his three-year deal with Mercedes GP, which expires at the end of the 2012 season.
Adding that he was still “deeply” enjoying driving in the sport, he continued: “I have many hobbies, I have my family. I don’t see myself working with a Formula 1 team unless I am driving.
“My passion for competition is still very much alive.”
The 42-year-old gave an interesting self-assessment of his performance after just over a year back on the F1 circuit.
“Ask the physios and the drivers and they’ll say unanimously that I am still up there,” he said.
“[However], if you ask me if I am the same [driver as in his heyday], the answer is probably not.
“But the success I had was because maybe I am exceptional. Probably I still am exceptional to do what I do at the age I am now,” he added.
