Michael Schumacher will be back in the F1 paddock at the French GP in July, however, not to race, but rather to support charity.

The seven-times World Champion will attend the French race as part of an agreement linking the FFSA and the Institute for Cerebral and Medullar Disorders.

For the third year running the FFSA and the ICM are joining forces to provide a memorable event, that will see those donating funds stand the chance of winning lap of the Magny-Cours track in a Ferrari with Schumi. They also stand to win a race-suit signed by the former Ferrari driver.

"For me, helping to create and develop the ICM has always been something obvious: a duty in fact," Schumi said. "It's a fantastic project managed by some exceptional people. I'm both happy and proud to be able to contribute to it."
