"No. Fortunately I found the right time to stop," he said in an interview with the German newspaper Bild. "I considered my decision for a long time but I got it right."
Schumacher, 38, reveals that after several visits to the paddock in 2007, he still has not found a more specified role to play within the formula one team. "But I do want to help with the development of Ferrari's road cars," he insists. "That is a lot of fun for me and I do have something to contribute." In terms of the Maranello based F1 team, Schumacher - who has put on three kilograms since ceasing his F1 training programme - admits that how much he can contribute is limited.
He said: "Already I notice that I am a little bit out of date, and the only alternative is to always be around -- and I absolutely do not want to do that." (GMM)
