Frankfurt:

Seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher will announce his retirement on Sunday at the Italian Grand Prix in Monza, the 'Bild' newspaper reported on Wednesday. "We can't comment on everything. As we said, there will be more on Sunday," Schumacher's spokeswoman Sabine Kehm said. The mass-circulation newspaper gave no source for its report. Schumacher's manager, Willi Weber, was quoted as telling Bild, "We won't have anything to say before Sunday." The German driver, who holds every major record in Formula One racing, has said before that he would announce a decision on his future at the Monza race. Speculation has been growing in the German media in recent weeks that Schumacher would retire when his contract with Ferrari expires at the end of the season, which still has four Grand Prix, including the Italian race. Schumacher trails defending Formula One champion Fernando Alonso by 12 points before the last four events. (AP)
