Willi Weber has announced his retirement from Formula 1

Former driver manager Willi Weber has announced that his days in Formula 1 are over. The German was famous for his role as manager to the Schumacher brothers and Nico Hülkenberg.

Weber earned the nickname ‘Mr 20%’ by dint of the lucrative earnings he pocked as Michael Schumacher’s manager during the World Champion’s heyday at Benetton and Ferrari.

This weekend will mark Weber’s 70th birthday, prompting the businessman to confirm he is hanging up the keys for good.

“I managed the best drivers in the world and that’s enough for me,” he told the German-language DAPD news agency.
