Having his lost his seat at Mercedes, Michael Schumacher is yet to determine what life beyond a Silver Arrows Formula 1 driver would be like.

The 43-year-old was uncertain whether he wanted to extend his contract with his team for 2013, following which the German manufacturer opted to replace him with Lewis Hamilton.

The seven-time world champion meanwhile is free to choose his next path, although the decision may take time.

"I think Michael's going to take a few months to think about things and reflect on things, to decide what to do in the future," Mercedes team principal Ross Brawn told Reuters. "Michael's been undecided for some time now in what to do.

"As Michael has been contemplating what he was going to do, then the opportunity to have Lewis join the team gradually increased, gradually grew to the point where we had to come to a conclusion," the Briton explained.

"There are opportunities within the team, within Mercedes for Michael to stay involved in some capacity or other, and he's particularly interested in developing high performance cars, that sort of thing," he added.
