New Mercedes role for Schumi

New Merc role for Schumi | Planet F1 | Formula One | News, Standings, Results, Features, Video

The Mercedes-Benz and Michael Schumacher partnership will continue with the seven-time World Champion being confirmed as an ambassador for the German manufacturer.

Schumacher quit Formula One at the end of last season after three unsuccessful seasons with the Brackley-based Mercedes, but he won't be lost to the team as they have announced that he will from here on in be involved in 'with topics relating to the future, in particular the further development of the Mercedes-Benz safety and comfort systems "Intelligent Drive", and represent them as an ambassador'.

"The future interests me much more than the present and past," Schumacher said in a statement. "During my Formula 1 time I always believed that you must not allow yourself to rest on your laurels, but that you must continuously try to improve.

"In so doing I was very often able to rely on the help of all the technologies available to me in the car and use them to my advantage. That is why I am a declared supporter of driving assistance systems both in the racing car and in the road-going car."

Dr Joachim Schmidt, executive vice-president Mercedes-Benz cars, sales and marketing, added: "We are proud that Michael Schumacher, the most successful and best-known racing driver in the world, is again joining us as our partner. Right from the time when he was a Mercedes-Benz junior and of course in the last three years as a driver in our Formula 1 team, Michael Schumacher has always been committed to our company's projects.

"This is why it is only logical for both sides to pool their expertise and know-how and to use them, for instance, for enhancing driver assistance systems and thus improve safety on the roads within a partnership."
