Michael Schumacher's press spokeswoman has played down reports the retired seven time world champion might get involved in the rescue of the embattled Honda Racing F1 team

Michael Schumacher's press spokeswoman has played down reports the retired seven time world champion might get involved in the rescue of the embattled Honda Racing F1 team.

It was suggested the 40-year-old could have been in talks with his former Ferrari colleague Ross Brawn, now the Brackley based team's boss, about investing some of his own money in the wake of Honda's decision to withdraw from the sport.

But to the German language portal motorsport-total.com, Schumacher's representative Sabine Kehm rubbished the rumour.

"Ross and Michael are still friends, that's true," she said.

"But Michael's involvement with Honda is limited to the IDM (German Superbike series)," Kehm added.
