Mercedes-Benz can now boast of quite an uncommon employee who would help them in the development process of performance oriented road cars. We are talking about one of the greatest F1 drivers of all times, Michael Schumacher, who last drove the F1 race for Mercedes AMG team in November. Although not as an employee per se, but more of an advisor help, Michael Schumacher wishes to hang on to his former employer and help them tune a few high-performance cars.
Seems like Michael Schumacher is doing the same with Mercedes-Benz as he had done when he was with the Ferrari team. After his first retirement from Ferrari in 2006, he hung on for a little more time playing the role of an advisor and also helped in the development of a few Ferrari horses like the Enzo-based FXX and the 458 Italia. In 2010, a historic moment happened when Schumacher made a second comeback, this time with the Mercedes F1 team, with Nico Rosberg as his team mate.
Michael Schumacher is also associated with Mercedes-AMG as being the brand ambassador for the same and has also featured in the TV commercial of the SLS AMG (remember the wind tunnel one?) There is no doubt that the experience of being around high-performance cars of this seven time world champion would benefit Mercedes. The latest to be expected from the Mercedes stable is the SLC sports car, hoping Schumacher to lend a hand on its works. Or how about a Michael Schumacher Special edition AMG vehicle?
