Schumacher: Hoping to meet Tendulkar

Michael Schumacher does not quite remember when was the last time they met, but the Formula One legend wants to catch up with good friend Sachin Tendulkar while being here for the Indian GP.

The two grabbed quite a few headlines in 2002 when Schumacher gifted the keys of a Ferrari to Tendulkar after the Indian equalled Sir Donald Bradman's tally of 29 Test centuries.

"Even I don't remember when was the last time we met, but I am looking forward to meet him," said Schumacher, who is in New Delhi for this Sunday's Indian Grand Prix.

Tendulkar, an avid F1 fan, has already stated that he would be supporting the Vijay Mallya-owned Force India during the Indian GP.

"I am excited about the Indian Grand Prix F1 race. I will support the Force India team. I have friends like Michael Schumacher, but I will support Force India because that is the Indian team and country comes first," Tendulkar said.

Schumacher's teammate, Nico Rosberg, meanwhile, has been exploring the city and even took a rickshaw ride while checking out Old Delhi.

"It was crazy after coming from Europe. I also rode a scooter on the track (for the race)," he said.
