MONZA - Rumours that seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher could announce his retirement soon increased on Tuesday when the German called a press conference.

The website www.f1racing.net said that Schumacher would be holding a press conference on Wednesday, which is the first day of the three-day tests at Monza.

The website said that: "Speculation is doing the rounds that with seven titles now in the bag, the 35-year-old feels he has nothing left to prove in F1.

"It's not unheard of for a new champion to want to talk to the press, but Michael does not always stage a post-title media call. The rumours weren't helped by Schumacher's sombre mood after wrapping up a seventh - (and final?) - drivers' crown on Sunday."
