As Chairman for Ferrari, Luca di Montezemolo has shared his companies point of view regarding the rumoured return to racing by Michael Schumacher in 2010 via the Mercedes GP squad. When asked by 'Reuters' if Ferrari would hold Schumacher to his multi year consultancy contract di Montezemolo responded, "No, it's not binding."
"It's clear that, if he decides to take another road, our agreement will no longer be valid - that is logical. You can't work with a competitor and with us at the same time," said di Montezemolo.
Adding, "I still haven't spoken to him about it. He is only a dear friend, not a team member. He is a consultant for our road cars."
