Schumacher, who has not ruled out moving to another team, had been tipped to replace his close friend and mentor Sebastian Vettel at Aston Martin after the four-time world champion announced he will be retiring at the end of the season. However, the British manufacturer swooped to sign Alpine’s Fernando Alonso for next year instead.
