Legendary driver Michael Schumacher has said that he may retire from Formula 1 for the second time after admitting that he is struggling with Mercedes his returning to the sport.
Schumacher was the outstanding driver Formula 1 in the late 1990s and early 2000s, winning seven world titles before retiring in 2006.However, he made a much anticipated comeback last year but despite holding his own, he has failed to win a race or make the podium.
The 42-year-old German has continually been out-performed by his team-mate Nico Rosberg and with the team unable to produce a topclass car, Scumacher has hinted that he may walk away:
“I arrived at Mercedes with a specific task: not winning at all costs but to grow the team,” Schumacher told Corriere dello Sport.
“If anything, I am the problem: it is a fact that I am a bit more relaxed than before and I do not know if my mind-set is right for this team.
“I have experience, I can estimate when it is necessary to concentrate. But I do not know if my mind-set is right for the team, in some time we will evaluate whether to continue or stop in F1.”
