Oct.17 (GMM) The world of premier motor racing could be set to farewell yet another member of the Schumacher family.

The 37-year-old, whose elder brother Michael is returning to retirement at the end of this year's F1 calendar, also drives for Mercedes' works team.

"I'm going to do the last race and then think about what my future looks like," Schumacher is quoted by the Kolner Express newspaper ahead of this weekend's Hockenheim finale.

He is third to last in the 2012 DTM standings, having scored just 8 points compared to teammate Jamie Green's 109.

Ralf Schumacher won 6 grands prix during his 182 Grand Prix career between 1997 and 2007.
