Responding to recent rumours, Schumacher's current boss Toto Wolff said last week that if the 24-year-old German wants to race at Le Mans next year, he can still keep his Mercedes reserve seat.

Famin admitted at Suzuka on Friday that talks with Schumacher about Renault-owned Alpine's world endurance prototype project are taking place.

It is true that we are talking to Mick about the possibility of taking part in our long-distance program, he said.

It would be a good opportunity for both parties, but for now we're just talking. Hopefully we will organise a test soon.
