Michael Schumacher's manager has rubbished the latest quit rumours

Michael Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm has described the latest rumours suggesting that the seven-time World Champion will quit Formula 1 at the end of the season as “nonsense”.

The German was attributed a quote in Italy’s Corriere dello Sport that he didn’t know “if [his] mindset was right for [Mercedes GP].”

But a report in his native-speaking Bild newspaper is quoting Kehm as rubbishing the latest stories.

“Since he returned to F1, Michael has not spoken to anyone from Corriere dello Sport,” she reiterated.

“He is full of passion for the project and regards it as an exciting challenge to build something big together with Mercedes,” she added.

“That it is sometimes tough only encourages him more," she said. "Someone who will soon celebrate their 20th anniversary in Formula 1 knows that perseverance is what makes the difference.”
