Once Michael Schumacher steps out of his Mercedes after the season-ending Brazilian Grand Prix this year, the German would have raced in his last motorsport event of his career.

The seven-time world champion will not be pursuing any motor racing endeavours once he pulls the plug on his Formula 1 foray reasoning that any other form of motorsport would not motivate him the same way.

"Formula 1 offers the maximum in terms of emotion, speed, and complete work. Any other kind of car would not give me the same emotions. I am stopping here completely," Schumacher told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I'm thinking of getting involved in Western Riding competitions," he added. "(Wife) Corinna, who has been doing these events for years, has already chosen the right horse for me. I'll give it a try..."

DTM, where Mercedes has a strong presence, was an option that the 43-year-old was expected to take up along with other possibilities which included racing bikes.

In this regard, Schumacher’s final competitive race would be the Race of Champions event in Bangkok in mid-December.
