The Michael Schumacher camp is still giving nothing away while refusing to quell rumours linking the 40-year-old with a 2010 return to Formula One.

The seven time world champion's long time manager Willi Weber was scheduled to meet on Monday with Schumacher in Stuttgart, although he insisted the location has nothing to do with the proximity of the Mercedes/Daimler headquarters.

But afterwards, Weber said "I don't know yet" when asked by the Cologne publication Express for more information about Schumacher's plans for next year.

Intriguingly, however, Weber mentioned the looming festive season, on the same day that Mercedes' Norbert Haug also warned that the identity of Nico Rosberg's teammate might not be known until after Christmas.

"That is speculation and I don't want to participate in it," said Weber when pressed again about the Mercedes rumours.

"Let's wait, even though soon it is Christmas."
