Red Bull to ‘contact’ Schumacher

(GMM) Red Bull's owner has vowed to contact Michael Schumacher later this year to see if the German would like to drive for his formula one team.

Dietrich Mateschitz told the 'Motorsport Aktuell' publication that the 37-year-old German, presently at Ferrari, might also be interested in joining BMW.

''In the last few months,'' the Austrian billionaire said, ''I have not said anything to Michael except 'hello'.

''However, we will contact him in June or July.''

Although Schumacher appears most likely to re-sign with his red team for 2007, Mateschitz said he 'cannot imagine' the seven time world champion serving alongside Kimi Raikkonen at Ferrari, or Fernando Alonso at McLaren.

''Beside Michael Schumacher belongs a young, rising driver,'' the Red Bull magnate added.

''I would also not exclude that he goes to BMW.''
