Germany´s Ralf Schumacher announced on Monday that he will leave the Toyota Formula One team at the end of the season.
"Having been a Toyota driver in the past three years, I opted for looking for a new challenge," Schumacher's personal Web site quoted him as saying in Shanghai ahead of Sunday's Chinese Grand Prix.
The 32-year-old, younger brother of Ferrari's retired seven times world champion Michael, did not say whether he intended to stay in Formula One.
"I'm going to have several conversations in the coming weeks. I will announce my decision when the season is over," he said.
"For me, the financial aspect is far less important than the chance of being involved in the development of a car and being successful afterwards."
