Ferrari want seven-times world champion Michael Schumacher to assist new team boss Jean Todt.

"Michael will be a super assistant to Jean Todt," Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo said at Monza on Sunday.
But Schumacher, who retired after last week's Brazilian Grand Prix, has yet to decide on any future role at the team.
"I can't say anything precise about what I will do - I don't want to define my role inside Ferrari yet," said the 37-year-old German.
"I will take a break in the coming months and then I will be more clear about what I want to do.
"Ferrari have left me free to decide and have given me the time that I need to make up my mind," the German added.
Ferrari are in the process of rebuilding their team following the departures of technical director Ross Brawn and engine supremo Paolo Martinelli.
Finn Kimi Raikkonen has already joined from McLaren as Schumacher's driver replacement.
But Brawn could still be back at Ferrari in 2007 after his time out from the sport and has said he will have talks in the middle of next year with Todt and di Montezemolo.
"I have no intention of joining any other team. But if I do return, it will be with Ferrari." he said.
Di Montezemolo added: "Ross has decided to take a sabbatical but I hope it's
not for too long. Ross and Ferrari are not yet finished."
