SEPTEMBER 16, 1996

Schumacher Jr. for Jordan

THE fact that Ralf Schumacher has blithely shrugged off the chance to become a McLaren driver can only indicate that the 21-year-old brother of World Champion Michael Schumacher has the solid offer of a drive elsewhere.

All the indications are that Ralf will find a seat with Jordan-Peugeot. The news is expected to be announced this week - probably in Estoril.

Last week the Das Bilt newspaper in Germany reported that Schumacher Jr. would sign for Jordan before Portugal quoting his manager Willi Weber saying that "we will announce a deal at the race in Estoril."
