Schumacher, 24, is a reserve driver for Mercedes but has struggled to get a chance behind Lewis Hamilton and George Russell.

He is also a reserve for McLaren.

He has recently admitted that he was looking at alternative options.

However, he seems to have a more specific plan in mind, according to Motorsport Aktuell.

The report claims that the German driver could join the Alpine group and participate in the 24-hour race in Le Mans, France.

Alpine Motorsport vice president Bruno Famin is believed to have contacted Schumacher about taking a test drive.

Schumacher spent two years at F1 team Haas but left in 2022.

He was replaced by fellow German driver Nico Hulkenberg.

Father Michael has not been seen in public since his horror ski crash in 2013.

His former team-mate Johnny Herbert suggested that his friends do not hear much “positive news” about the retired driver.

He said: “There’s never any news.

“What we do know is we never hear any positive news.

“That’s the horrible thought that he is still not able to be close to the Michael that we all remember. And that is very sad.”
