Sep.7 (GMM/Inautonews.com) Former grand prix winner Ralf Schumacher and his wife Cora are set to separate, according to unconfirmed reports in the Italian press.

The news follows the publication of photos in the German daily Bild depicting Cora being passionately kissed the German rapper Marteria on a hotel balcony in Berlin.

The report said that, at the time, former Williams and Toyota driver Schumacher, 36, was away for a race of the German touring car series DTM.

Bild said it believes the marriage had already broken down but that Ralf and Cora were staying together for the sake of their ten-year-old son David.

Meanwhile, Schumacher’s former Williams teammate Jenson Button – who now drives for McLaren – has opened a restaurant in Harrogate, UK.

The Independent said the menu at Victus “was apparently selected based on” the 2009 world champion’s “interests in different cuisines cultivated while globetrotting on the F1 circuit”.
