Michael Schumacher has confirmed he will enter talks with Ferrari "after the summer" about his future with the Italian team.

The seven time world champion has been an unspecified 'advisor' to the Maranello squad since stepping out of the race cockpit in 2006.

He was openly criticised by the media for his involvement in Ferrari's strategy bungles in Australia and Malaysia, and did not travel to the subsequent Shanghai-Bahrain double header.

40-year-old German Schumacher's Ferrari contract runs out this year.

"After the summer we will see what makes sense and what does not," he confirmed in an interview with the German news agency DPA.

He said his involvement with Ferrari could have been much deeper than it currently is.

"I could have taken on the role of Jean Todt, but it was not for me," Schumacher explained. "It would have been the wrong time and, above all, I think Stefano Domenicali is able to perform the job much better than I would have."
