Ferrari plans to give retired Formula 1 superstar Michael Schumacher a ‘super-assistant’ role to support its newly-promoted CEO Jean Todt. According to the Frenchman, the seven-time world champion’s unique understanding of racing makes Schumacher the perfect muse in matters of driver selection, sporting decisions and the firm’s road car plans. ‘Michael has always been interested in following young drivers,’ said Todt at Ferrari’s end-of-season celebrations at Monza. Todt added that Ferrari wanted to take advantage of the wisdom and experience gleaned over 11 years of competition together at the highest level. Ferrari’s president Luca Montezemolo said at the press conference ‘I’m very happy that Michael will continue to work with us and share our choices.’
