Schumacher returns to F1

Mercedes Grand Prix’s most lucrative signing, Michael Schumacher, has once clear target for his historic F1 comeback in 2010: an eighth F1 championship title.

"Mercedes represents a new challenge for me both in a sporting and a personal context," Schumacher said. "It is a new chapter in my racing career and I am really looking forward to working with my old friend Ross Brawn and my companions from my days with the Mercedes Junior Programme.

"I am convinced that together we will be involved in the fight for the Formula 1 World Championship next year and I am already looking forward to getting back onto the race track. For me, this partnership closes the circle. Mercedes supported me for so many years when I began my Formula 1 career and now I can hopefully give something back to the brand with the star."

You’d be crazy not to bet against Schumacher being a contender next year!
