Ralf and Red Bull

(GMM) Ralf Schumacher is eyeing a switch from Toyota to the Red Bull Racing team, according to reports.

'Bild' newspaper in Germany claims that the 31-year-old, who lives in Austria, is dissatisfied with his current Cologne based team and has already opened talks with Dietrich Mateschitz's camp.

In theory, the younger brother of Michael Schumacher could easily wiggle out of his current Toyota contract after negotiating an 'exit' clause for the end of each year.

'Bild' says Ralf is 'close friends' with Mateschitz and also lives near the billionaire's Salzburg base.

But Ralf said: ''I am good friends with Didi but there is nothing more to it. I feel very good at Toyota at the moment.''

Red Bull's official response is also interesting. ''We do not have a comment about that,'' said spokesman Thomas Hoffmann.

Moreover, Ralf's brand new manager and advisor – Hans Mahr – is also a friend of Mateschitz.
