The former Ferrari and Mercedes driver Michael Schumacher has said that he does not want to become a TV pundit in the future. The German driver is regarded as one of the best drivers of all time in the sport. He has the records to back up his claim, as he has managed to lift a record seven world championship titles during his illustrious career that saw him race for the likes of Benetton, Ferrari, and Mercedes. He drove for Mercedes in his second stint in the sport, which was not successful. Now, he has said that he does not want to involve in TV punditry because it would take away this time from the family.
Schumacher has said that he is keen on spending more time with his family, and TV punditry does not allow this. Hence, he would rather be racing or be spending time with his family rather than work as a TV pundit. The 43-year-old German has also revealed that he is now helping his wife Corinna in her interests like horse breeding. Regarding the 2013 F1 season, Schumacher has revealed that he has said that too much importance should not be given to winter testing. He has said that there will be different winners over the course of the campaign.
“That would not be my cup of tea. Things move so fast in Formula One that I’m already actually a long way off the pace. Secondly, I would again be away from my family so I might as well be driving. [had I been away] that would have been more fun. We also know that winter tests are only of limited relevance. I think the season will be really tight. We had seven different winners in 2012 in the first seven races. And I think this is a trend for this year,” said Schumacher.
