Michael Schumacher says age is not a factor in the fight for Formula One titles but the 43-year-old German continues to leave his future open ahead of his 300th Grand Prix in Belgium on Sunday.

Schumacher told dpa in an interview that "it has nothing to do with age" on whether he could win another title or not, if he continues in Formula One beyond the present season.

The seven-time world champion said ahead of Sunday's Belgian Grand Prix the question of another F1 title "unfortunately is not there" this year, with Mercedes not a contender.

"This year we are no longer fighting for the world championship. Let's see what the future holds," he said.

Schumacher's contract expires at the end of the season. He has previously said he would like to wait until October before making any decision on his future.
