Ralf says Michael will soon retire

Ralf Schumacher says that his brother Michael will retire from the sport soon. The Toyota F1 driver says that he does not believe that Michael will go on much longer.

"He'll stay as long as he's having fun with it," Ralf told the German newspaper Bild. "The success in past years was obviously a lot of fun for him. He's not having that fun at the moment and I'm very keen to see what will happen if it stays like that until the end of the season. Ferrari have passed its peak. They've did a great job in previous years but they're not doing it anymore. When Michael leaves then a lot of good people will leave at the same time and after that it will be very difficult for Ferrari to get back to the top."
