Michael Schumacher is a "potential witness" for the current proceedings of a Stuttgart court, according to his former manager Willi Weber's lawyer.

Weber, who now handles Williams rookie Nico Hulkenberg's career, is defending more charges relating to the company Pole Position Marketing.

The company handled official formula one merchandising for both Schumacher and his younger brother Ralf.

Weber was sentenced to probation and a hefty fine two years ago, so for the latest charges - involving the embezzlement of DUR 1.2 million - he could be jailed.

"Michael Schumacher," said lawyer Barbara Livonius, "would be a potential witness."
