Schumacher On the Brink of Buying Out Toro Rosso
There has been a lot of speculation and rumors in regard to the intentions Michael Schumacher might have to purchase the Formula One Team Scuderia Toro Rosso. Schumacher’s manager has been hinting at the possibility for months. For Michael Schumacher to have an interest, in a different role, in the sport he loves does not come as a big surprise. After his retirement from Formula One as a driver, the legendary seven-time world champion has been an adviser for his former Ferrari team.
The Scuderia Toro Rosso Team is owned by Gerhard Berger and Dietrich Mateschitz. Together they purchased the outfit from Paul Stoddart in 2005. The outfit raced under the name of Minardi from 1985, but due to budget restraints, Stoddart made the decision to sell the outfit to new owners that would be capable of ensuring a future for the team. And so the Red Bull car launched onto the circuit in 2006.
While the multi-million deal still has most people guessing and wondering, the entire Formula One community has already welcomed the idea with open arms. With such a brilliant reputation and a profound knowledge of the sport, most insiders feel that such a move can only be an asset to the Formula One Industry. As a team owner, Schumacher will still be able to be a part of the world that he took by storm and hopefully carry on doing so.
It has also been said, that not only does Michael Schumacher have his eyes on the Scuderia Toro Rosso outfit, but has also targeted Ross Brawn to assist him. Ross Brawn is known as a technical genius and was also the driving force behind Schumacher’s successful championship titles. Together they will definitely be a team to be reckoned with and breathe new life into the Formula One circuit, from a different point of view.
As the world waits in anticipation, for the truth to be revealed, fans and friends in the Formula One circles, eagerly look forward to welcoming Michael Schumacher back. And to support the loved and respected World Champion in his new seat, as team boss and owner.
