Sure he'll come back to F1 in some sort of advisory/management role after he's enjoyed a few years off with the wife and kids....although maybe he's had enough of the paddock.

You'd never see Kimi doing that but they are completely different characters.

I don't see him coming back in some advisory role. Compared to what he's experienced he would find that boring. I think he'll settle down & spend valuable time with his family, fair play Michael, enjoy your retirement!

I was never was a big fan, particularly when he punted Hill off to become Champion, but I did come to acknowledge his talent. He was good on a Superbike - One race having fallen & remounted in 15th he battled up to 3rd again I believe! Fair play!

With the bank balance he has he can do anything he likes including chilling out for a while but I can't see him doing nothing for too long he will find something to occupy him and wasting his millions on starting up or backing a F1 team is not one of them.

Although if the financial situation with Kingfisher Airlines and VJ gets worse, I'd enjoy seeing Schumi rustle up some loose change and buy Force India.

Could be worth a giggle.

I don't think he's stupid enough to put his own money into a team. Even with sponsorship we all know bags of money doesn't = success.
I'd rather see him take it easy, make guest appearances ( and wave two fingers at Ross Brawn).
