Schumacher enjoying life after Formula 1

Seven-times world champion Michael Schumacher said on Tuesday he has no regrets after retiring from Formula One last year and enjoys life more away from the track with his family.
After 15 years at the top, the 38-year-old German quit the sport last year, having won five consecutive titles with Ferrari between 2000 and 2004, but is enjoying life as an adviser for his old team.
"I do not miss the racing driving at the moment at all," he told Bild newspaper.
"I live a really good life now. I am a very happy man. I have had a very nice time during the last years, but I am definitely having a better time now.
"I can arrange my schedule now so that I can spend the school holidays with my children. This is so nice for us. I simply have more time at home."
After a stellar career, Schumacher said he enjoys watching the races, but had no desire to get back behind the wheel.
"I like watching the races on television," he said.
"I find it quite amusing now. It is interesting to see things from the other side.
"But I simply watch now to have fun with the family and friends."
And as for a winner of this year's championship, Schumacher is true to his old team - even though they are five points behind McLaren-Mercedes.
"I firmly believe in Ferrari," he said, "this is the only one that counts."

It would have been interesting to see, how everyone measured up, with Michael Schumacher in the mix.
IMO, he could have given the present field a run for their money.
Even a great talent like Hamilton might come to regret to never have gotten the measure of Schumi.
