Michael Will Be Champion, Says R.Schumacher

Wednesday April 5th, 2000

Williams driver Ralf Schumacher is convinced his elder brother Michael will win this year's Formula One championship in his Ferrari. "I assume he will (win the drivers' title)," the younger Schumacher told weekly Bunte in an interview released on Wednesday. "I can't see what could stop him."

Ralf Schumacher, warming up for the season's third round, the San Marino Grand Prix at Imola on Sunday, said he was very close to his brother who has won the season's first two races and the drivers' title twice.

"We are brothers and we love each other," he said. "Formula One will not change that."

But he did say he was tired of always being referred to as 'Little Schumi'.

"All I've achieved, I've done by myself," he said. "What I'm worth has nothing to do with Michael's victories."
