Legal trouble has struck again for Willi Weber, Michael Schumacher's long time manager.

Legal trouble has struck again for Willi Weber, Michael Schumacher's long time manager.

The 68-year-old, who now handles Nico Hulkenberg's young career, was sentenced to probation and a hefty fine by a German court two years ago, for moving money and assets from a merchandise company and then declaring it insolvent.

The German publications Express and Speedweek now report that Weber must return to court, and because of his prior conviction could be jailed.

For related matters regarding the fraudulent bankruptcy of the 'Pole Position Marketing' company, Weber will reportedly now defend his case in a Stuttgart court.

He is quoted as commenting: "The court will objectively examine the accusations, and I am convinced of a positive conclusion in my favour."
