Michael Schumacher believes that being a TV pundit is not 'his thing'

Mar.10 (GMM) Michael Schumacher has ruled out returning to the Formula One paddock as a television pundit.

It is an occupation now enjoyed by a number of the seven time world champion's rivals, like former teammates Martin Brundle and Johnny Herbert, and even his title nemesis Damon Hill.

But, although now returning to retirement after three final years with Mercedes, Schumacher is not coming back to occupy a microphone.

"That would not be my thing," he told Bild newspaper.

"First, things move so fast in Formula One that even I am already a long way behind, and that is not my style," said the 44-year-old legend.

"Secondly, once again I would be away from my family, and not even having the fun of driving."

So, asked what he will be doing when the cars line up on the Melbourne grid without him next weekend, Schumacher answered: "At home, watching TV."
