Schumacher returns to F1

Here’s something we didn’t know before!

Michael Schumacher’s deal with Mercedes Grand Prix is actually for three seasons, and not the single season originally anticipated.

"Mercedes GP and I agreed on teaming up for the coming 3 seasons and to be honest, I’m already super excited by the prospect to be back in a F1 cockpit," Schumacher said. "I don’t want to deny at all that the idea of a German F1 team tempts me. I guess every German driver would feel this way. And of course it plays a major role that I again can work together with Ross at Mercedes GP. Above all, however, my old hunger for racing is back.

"In Abu Dhabi, when Ross asked me if I could imagine returning to F1, I felt that I wasn’t ready for it. But only two weeks later, when he called me once again, I realised that my old passion was returning. Suddenly I was on fire again. For me, the imagination to be back in a F1 car and to compete for the world championships is exciting and extremely inspiring."

This type of talk is very dangerous for his rivals!
