Seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher is currently testing a GP2 car at the Jerez circuit in southern Spain as part of the preparations for his Formula One comeback with Mercedes GP-Petronas next season.

REUTERS - Michael Schumacher will test a GP2 car at the Jerez circuit in southern Spain this week as part of the seven times world champion's preparations for a Formula One comeback with Mercedes.

The team and GP2 organisers said on Monday that the 41-year-old German, who retired at the end of 2006 after winning 91 races, will be at the wheel of a development car for the Formula One support series from Tuesday to Thursday.

The session, closed to the public, will allow Schumacher to get some important track time before Formula One testing starts on Feb. 1.

It will also help GP2 organisers develop a car due to be introduced next year.

"Michael's input and advice will be invaluable," GP2 organiser Bruno Michel said in a statement. "I am confident that his knowledge and unparalleled driving skills will help us to develop a great car for next season."
