Seven-time World Champion Michael Schumacher will be gunning for a seventh Nations Cup at the Race of Champions this year after confirming his participation.
The German has partnered compatriot Sebastian Vettel the past six years and on each occasion they won the Nations Cup. Last year the pair won 10 races out of 10 en route to victory.
Schumacher will be back for more at Bangkok's Rajamangala Stadium at December 14 and 15 and he is eager to extend his winning run.
"I am sorry to say but of course we want to win it again!" he said. "The fact that it will be the seventh title this year makes it even more interesting, at least for me. So be prepared for a hot Team Germany in the ROC Nations Cup.
"This year I am still spending a lot of time on four wheels, but obviously not in F1. I still do a lot of karting as this is my 'old' love, and I have been driving the Mercedes AMG SLS GT3 which was a really good experience. It is obviously different when you are racing every other weekend but I am still quite used to it."
Race organiser Fredrik Johnsson is delighted that the legendary F1 driver will be in action in Bangkok again.
"We are proud that Michael so enjoys the Race Of Champions he keeps coming back for more," he said. "He may have officially retired from F1 but we all know that hasn't dimmed his competitive spirit.
"This will be a rare chance to see the world's most successful racing driver take on the best of today's talent in identical machinery. We hope fans from Thailand and around the world will grab this unique opportunity to see this driving legend in action once more."
