Schumacher injured his neck in a bike racing accident early this year. The seven-times champion told Der Spiegel, in an interview due to be published tomorrow:
From now to the end of the year, my neck injury will be healed to the point where I could drive again.
I have nothing to prove to anyone, not even myself. I still slightly regret having retired three years ago but there’s no reason whatsoever for me to definitively announce that I will not come back.
The life I lead makes me happy but who knows that will happen a few months or a year down the line?
As Schumacher has extended his contract with the company it is unlikely Schumacher could drive for another team.
