LONDON, England - Retired seven-times Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher will drive his old race car again in May in a demonstration run around the daunting Nurburgring Nordschleife in Germany.

Mercedes said the 44-year-old's drive in a 2011 car around the old 20km track, before the start of a 24-hour race on May 19, would be a "thank you" to his fans for their years of support.


It will also be the first outing on the track, dubbed 'The Green Hell' by triple champion Jackie Stewart in the 1970's, by a modern works Mercedes Silver Arrow F1 car since Argentine Juan Manuel Fangio won there in 1954.

Schumacher, who grew up in nearby Kerpen, retired from F1 in 2013 and is now a "brand ambassador" for Mercedes.
