Schumacher may be in F1 until 2006

http://f1.racing-live.com/en/

Freshly-crowned Formula One champion Michael Schumacher could be remaining with Ferrari until 2006 according to his long-time manager Willi Weber. At present the German has a contract which will see him remain at the Italian stable until 2004, but Weber now says that Schumacher may want to continue racing even after that and could look to add a further two years to his contract with the reigning world champions.

Sunday's French Grand Prix saw Schumacher equal Juan Manuel Fangio's record of five world titles, and the German has already said that would like to go for number six now, and sees no reason why that will not be possible. Schumacher and Weber's words are in sharp contrast to recent rumours that the Ferrari ace may retire at the end of the this season, but according to Weber there is no reason why he may even consider retiring in two years time.

Weber told German newpaper Bild am Sonntag: "Yes, it could be that we will extend the contract with Ferrari until 2006. I don't see any reason at this moment why Michael should retire in two years.”

With regards to Schumacher's fifth title Weber added: "Statistics do not really mean a lot to Michael. But catching Fangio means a lot to him. And next year he will try to fly past Fangio. That would be wonderful, he really deserves it.”

Schuey will surpass Fangio's record no problems, and he's eastily got a few more championships left in him, especially if sticking with Ferrari.

The only thing that could stop him is boredom. Isn't he sick of winning yet?

Schumacher will go down as the greatest F1 driver ever by the time he retires.

Schumi will more than likely win the championship up until 2006, the rest of the drivers should pencil in 2007 as the best chance.
