It might seem a silly thing to say, but Michael Schumacher has been much in the news recently. This is not because of anything he has won - if we discount the Indianapolis fiasco a year ago, his last victory was at Suzuka in October 2004 - but because of continuing speculation about his future.
In the last week Willi Weber has 'revealed' an approach from Renault for 2007, and there is a certain logic here, for Fernando Alonso is leaving and Schumacher and Flavio Briatore operated very successfully together at Benetton more than a decade ago.
Willi was ever adept at keeping a pot bubbling - remember his suggestion that McLaren were hot after Ralf in 2004? When I asked McLaren folk if there were anything in this, they looked bemused: "This is Ralf Schumacher you're talking about?"
At the time it seemed that Michael's brother wouldn't be able to give himself away for '05 - he and Williams had lost interest in each other and if others were queuing for his services, they were disguising it well. In the end, though, Weber did a deal with Toyota - and not for shekels, either, as Jarno Trulli can tell you. I wouldn't play poker with Willi.
