Germany's Bild claims the 43-year-old is very close to announcing a new deal to keep racing at Mercedes beyond 2012, but at the same time the newspaper wondered if the seven time world champion might "need glasses?"

"It had nothing to do with poor vision," the German's manager Sabine Kehm insisted. "Don't worry, Michael is more than fit."

She had been asked about Schumacher's strange pre-race mistakes at the Hungaroring: first lining up in the wrong grid spot, and then turning off his engine when the start was aborted.

"We're all only human and can make mistakes," Danner told the German news agency SID, "but really they shouldn't happen to a Formula One driver.

"If it had happened to a young driver, we'd all say he's not ready for F1."
