Schumacher's sponsor extends contract
31 August 2005 –
The 'Deutsche Vermögensberatung AG' has extended its sponsorship contract with Michael Schumacher. The company signed up the sponsorship deal for Schumacher's cap back in 1997 and will feature on his cap untill December 2010.
The extension of his sponsorship doesn't necessarily mean that Schumacher will continue racing until the end of 2010. "We are more connected as friends than as a business partner," Schumacher said. "An early extension of our contract makes a lot of sense because we are already looking forward to a good future together."
The original contract between Schumacher and his personal sponsor would end at the end of 2006.
