Schumacher to race for Mercedes Until 2012

Published by on Dec 28th, 2009, 2 Comments

If earlier reports indicated that Michael Schumacher will be with riding under the Mercedes F1 team flag for only one year, we just caught wind that the German racer actually intends to be with the team until 2012. After 91 grand prix wins and a 16 year long career, Schumacher returns to the circuit being persuaded by his former Ferrari technical director, Ross Brawn.

It will take time to get over the Ferrari hang as Michael Schumacher won 5 titles with the red devils over a period of 14 years, prior to becoming an advisor for the Italians. Schumacher could end up as a brand ambassador for Mercedes once he is finished racing for the team in 2012. He also clarified that his number one driver status talks were a hoax as it was always up to the team management to decide his status and it will be no different while being on the new team.

whilst I am not a Schumi fan, having grown up in a period when we had gentlemen racing drivers, no one can dispute that Michael is the world’s greatest F1 driver; measured by any standards. This is just what the sport needed to inject more excitement into 2010. He will be champion again because of his steel will and determination.

Just like Lauda was a returning out of retirement,Lauda wasn’t in as good shape a Schmacher and won first year by half a point over the young Professor Prost.
