Schumacher's bad news for Formula One rivals ''I want to race many more years.''

Michael Schumacher has bad news for his rivals. The 34-year-old plans to keep on racing as long as he can squeeze that extra bit of power out of his Ferrari. He says retirement plans are on hold as long as he can compete with the younger drivers.

"But I'm a long way off that," he told the Stuttgarter Zeitung on Wednesday. "I want to race many more years in Formula One. What happens afterwards doesn't interest me yet."

The five-times world champion was estimated to be earning 67 million dollars a year with Ferrari and he has no plans for moving.

"As long as there's stability and I'm motivated, I'll stay at Ferrari," he said.

Schumacher, signed by Ferrari in 1995, finished third in the world championship in his first season in 1996 and has won the world title for the last three years. His first two world titles were with Benetton in 1994-95.

"I'm the one they're trying to knock off the pedestal and it's good like that. Better to be dethroned than never to have reached the highest step," he said.

Schumacher, who won his 65th Grand Prix at San Marino two weeks ago, races Ferrari's new F2003-GA for the first time in Sunday's Spanish Grand Prix. His San Marino win, his first of the season, left him in third place in the title race on 18 points, 14 behind McLaren driver Kimi Raikkonen.
