    Schumacher Back In F1

    Michael Schumacher will make a remarkable comeback next season with the Mercedes Grand Prix team, it was confirmed on Wednesday.
    The seven-time Formula One world champion quit Grand Prix racing at the end of the 2006 season after winning an all-time record 91 races (among 154 podium finishes) and 68 pole positions. Since then he has served as a trackside consultant for Ferrari, with which he won five of his titles. Schumacher will partner with Nico Rosberg in an all-German driving squad. Many Formula One insiders had anticipated a one-season deal, but Schumacher's new contract is for three years. Mercedes bought a stake in the former Brawn GP after the season and renamed it.
    Schumacher, will 41 years old on Jan. 3, 2010.

    Assuming that Brawn stays with them, it'll be a great team back together!

    I had heard the rumors, but hadn't seen confirmation. Thanks for the post!

    The Kerpen native duly left, but he also left behind some unfinished business – and after his failed comeback in-place of Massa following the Brazilian's terrifying Hungaroring qualifying accident during the summer re-awakened his thirst for the fight, he is now back to finish it off.

    “Mercedes Grand Prix Petronas represents a new challenge for me both in a sporting and a personal context,” Schumacher affirmed. “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.

    *darth vader voice* NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    It was obvious this was happening for a while but this is horrible. I like Schumacher so it's a lose lose situation. He does well that hurts Ferrari if he doesn't do well then all the anti-schumacher people will come out of the wood work again.


    The thing I found surprising is his contract was only 7million euros. Which is a lot but not what I'd consider "schumacher money".
