Schumacher predicts little change

THREE-TIME world champion Michael Schumacher is predicting that there will be little change in the way of team dominance for next season.

Both McLaren and Ferrari dominated last season and have been in control for the last three years -- having won either the constructors' or drivers' championship since 1998.

However, Schumacher admitted that the introduction of Michelin will see the scramble for points hot-up next season.

He said: "Next season will be hard again. We will be fighting with McLaren for the title but with the advent of Michelin tires there will be room in some circumstances for other teams to make a challenge."
