Michael Schumacher’s long-standing spokeswoman Sabine Kehm has confirmed that her 41-year-old charge and seven-time World Champion, Michael Schumacher, has rejoined the Grand Prix Drivers’ Association (GPDA).

Speculation had arisen in March that Schumacher was reluctant to rejoin the group that he chaired for several season, amid rumours that he clashed with the then-Chairman, Pedro de la Rosa, who quit the group in protest in the wake of the ‘La Rascasse-gate’ scandal in 2006, where Schumacher was found to have deliberately blocked the track to baulk rival drivers’ qualifying times.

Now that he has a full-time F1 drive with Sauber, de la Rosa has since stepped down from his Chairman role and has been replaced by Mercedes GP test driver Nick Heidfeld.

It is now believed that the lone non-member is Force India’s Adrian Sutil.

So, Adrian, when are you going to join?
