Mar.9 (GMM) Michael Schumacher's manager has hinted that the retired seven time world champion might buy a formula one team.
38-year-old Schumacher is already an advisor for his old Ferrari outfit, but he could be eyeing up a stake in F1's other Italian based team -- Scuderia Toro Rosso.
"Perhaps we will go and ask a billionaire if he wants to sell us his spare team," the newspaper 'AZ' quoted Schumacher's long time associate Willi Weber - who already runs a team in the A1 series - as saying.
Alongside former grand prix winner Gerhard Berger, Toro Rosso - formerly the Minardi squad - is owned by Red Bull's Dietrich Mateschitz, who has been ranked 287th on Forbes magazine's list of billionaires in 2007.
Weber added: "I don't know it for sure, but I could imagine that Michael buys a team. But he is never going to be Ferrari's team boss.
"All that responsibility, work and stress -- why would Michael Schumacher want to do that? But if he owned a team, it would be a different task."
