Ralf issues McLaren declaration
Ralf Schumacher
Schumacher notched just five points for Toyota in 2007
Ralf Schumacher has thrown his hat into the ring to fill the McLaren Formula One drive vacated by Fernando Alonso.

"It's no secret that the seat at McLaren-Mercedes is by far the most coveted there is," the 32-year-old German told Bild am Sonntag newspaper.

"Every driver out there in the market would love to sit in their super car."

The younger brother of F1 great Michael Schumacher won six Grands Prix at Williams before moving to Toyota in 2005 where he failed to shine.

He has been replaced for next season by compatriot Timo Glock.

McLaren have yet to decide who will partner Britian's Lewis Hamilton in 2008, but are thought to favour a younger driver.

Nico Rosberg (Williams), Heikki Kovaleinen (Renault) and Adrian Sutil (Spyker) have all been linked with the seat.

But Williams have told McLaren that Rosberg is going nowhere, Kovaleinen could be retained by Renault, and Sutil is admired by Spkyer's new owner, the Indian billionaire Vijay Mallya.
