Michael Schumacher to take position at Mercedes-Benz helping with testing and development of Mercedes and AMG road cars
So, retirement from professional racing for Michael Schumacher is not all that bad. As you know Schumacher announced his retirement from Formula 1 last year after Mercedes-Benz signed Lewis Hamilton
. There were questions as to whether Schumacher would move to another series or take on some other capacity. Schumacher will officially take up a role which has not been specified with Mercedes-Benz road cars although one can assume he will be doing test driving and giving feedback much in a similar manner to Walter Rohrl for Porsche.
Schumacher will also spend time as a brand ambassador for Mercedes-Benz as well as AMG and likely be a figure at debuts and parties for Mercedes-Benz. Not all that bad of a gig after being one of the best drivers in the world, eh?
