Michael Schumacher’s manager has answered speculation about the seven time world champion’s future by saying “Anything is possible”.
Replaced at Mercedes by Lewis Hamilton for 2013, 43-year-old Schumacher is now seriously linked with a switch to Sauber. Schumacher’s current manager is Sabine Kehm, who has been spotted recently in conversation with the Swiss team’s chiefs Peter Sauber and Monisha Kaltenborn. But Schumacher’s well-known former manager, Willi Weber, said that if he was still in charge, “I would get in a car immediately and go and talk to Luca (di Montezemolo) at Maranello.”
Fernando Alonso is clearly the standout driver of the 2012 season so far, two of his peers have explained.
Narain Karthikeyan, who usually brings up the rear of the field in his HRT, said the championship leader has performed above the level of the Ferrari. “Alonso is pulling out something much more than what that Ferrari is capable of,” the Indian told the PTI news agency.
“Will Pastor or Valtteri be top drivers in the future? I believe so”
Williams’ driver lineup will “definitely” remain in place this year, team shareholder and executive director Toto Wolff insists. He joked that a change of policy will happen “when the sun falls from the sky,” according to Speed Week.
Well-known Brazilian commentator Reginaldo Leme has defended Felipe Massa, amid the Ferrari driver’s career crisis.
Massa’s Ferrari seat hangs in the balance, and according to his boss Stefano Domenicali, he will have to improve in order to simply stay on the F1 grid with any team next year. But Leme has pointed the finger of blame at Ferrari’s struggling F2012 car.
