Ralf Schumacher has revealed he might travel to the Spanish port city Valencia later this month to watch his famous brother make his Formula One comeback.

The German, who is six years younger than Michael Schumacher, left F1 one season later than the seven time world champion when he lost his Toyota race seat in 2007.

Ralf now competes in the German touring car series DTM, and he told the Cologne newspaper Express that he will try to make the journey to Valencia for the European Grand Prix.

"If I had gotten an opportunity like Michael, then I probably also would have accepted it," said 34-year-old Schumacher.

Like many other drivers, David Coulthard had been linked with Felipe Massa's vacant seat, but he seemed to scoff at the reliability of those rumours in conversation with Britain's Daily Telegraph.

"Well, I couldn't keep up with Kimi when I was at McLaren so what f*****g chance would I have now?!" said the Scot.
