Schumacher will continue with Race of Champions

Michael Schumacher will continue with the Race of Champions beyond this season
Michael Schumacher says he intends to keep competing in the Race of Champions when he retires from F1 at the end of the season.

The seven-time F1 champion will team up with Sebastian Vettel again for the end of year event as the pair seek to secure another Nations Cup crown for Germany – with the duo having won the event for the past five years.

Eager to match his haul of F1 titles, Schumacher insists he hasn't given up on the end of season event yet as he seeks to add to his silverware.

"I'm very much looking forward to racing with my old mate Seb for another repeat of our title,” he said. "But my lucky number is actually number seven. So we've got to do this and then the one after. That would be the ultimate. Obviously this means I'm not retiring from the Race Of Champions yet.

"I could have retired from it by the end of this year, but I don't want to. It's too much fun. And as long as I'm still a bit competitive in it, why not?"

Jorge Lorenzo, Jamie Whincup, Ryan Hunter-Reay and David Coulthard are amongst the other motorsport stars who have confirmed that will compete this season.
