Michael Schumacher's manager has expressed concern about a website featuring the famous seven time world champion's name.

Typing www.michael.schumacher.de into a browser directs internet users not to the 41-year-old's official website, but to the site owned by fashion designer Dorothy Schumacher-Singoff.

The domain ralf.schumacher.de also redirects to the Schumacher fashion website.

Michael Schumacher's manager Willi Weber told the Cologne publication Express that it is "unbelievable" that people are still willing to exploit his client's famous name.

"I thought those things were behind us," he said.

Lawyer Bernd Saint-Paul indicated that legal action may be necessary due to Schumacher-Singoff's possible breach of a demarcation agreement.
