Why F1 stars fail in the DTM

By:

With the Michael Schumacher-to-DTM rumours gathering pace, Jamie O'Leary analyses the form of previous F1 stars making the switch and reveals that it may not be worth the hassle

So Michael Schumacher has decided to retire from Formula 1 - again.

The announcement made by the German in the Suzuka paddock came as no great surprise given Lewis Hamilton's signing of a multi-year deal the previous week.

Amid all the outpouring of thanks and praise to all he's worked with during his three-year F1 comeback with Mercedes, some of the most important words were those he didn't utter. This was the revelation of a retirement from grand prix racing, not racing altogether.
