Michael Schumacher will retire from Formula One for the second time at the end of the season.
The seven-time World Champion will leave the Northamptonshire-based Mercedes Petronas team at the end of the season.
Schumacher's seat at Mercedes will be taken by McLaren's Lewis Hamilton in 2013.
He said: "I have decided to retire at the end of the season. I still feel I am capable of competing against the best but the time sometimes comes to say goodbye and this time it might be forever."
