Schumacher's new gig
He will be a test driver for the Tony Kart team in 2013
Reports that Michael Schumacher has signed up as Mercedes' F1 test driver for 2013 are wrong.
The reports were sparked when the retiring seven time world champion was quoted in English-language reports as saying: "I have signed a contract and will be active as a test driver".
In fact, the 43-year-old's interview was with Stern, the German weekly newsmagazine.
And he clarified to the Germany daily Bild that he will be a test driver in 2013 -- for the Italian kart chassis maker Tony Kart.
He explained: "I like karting. It's always been a big thing for me
Indeed, Michael Schumacher told Stern that he is looking forward to "not thinking so much about F1" in 2013 and beyond.
