Jean Todt says he could imagine Michael Schumacher making a return to professional racing in "maybe two years".

But the FIA president, who was the team boss at Ferrari throughout the great German's reign of ultra-success - and is still a close friend - thinks 43-year-old Schumacher's days in formula one are now definitely over.

"His decision (to retire) relates only to formula one. He could decide to race in other categories," he added, according to reports in the Italian media.
