Michael's back - take 2

Quote
Seven-times Formula 1 world champion Michael Schumacher has come out of retirement and signed for Mercedes.
The German, who will be 41 on 3 January, was unveiled at the Mercedes factory in Brackley, Northamptonshire.
Schumacher will partner compatriot Nico Rosberg in the team that won the drivers' and constructors' titles in 2009 in its former guise as Brawn.

Probably spent a few million, whilst "on holiday" for the last three years, and needs to top up his overdraft again.  Roll eyes

Re: Michael's back - take 2

he has been working for Ferrari as a consultant all that time, and although no doubt not at his driving salary - I expect it was in the Millions ?.

Should add to the interest of 2010 season Smiley
I see he's only signed a one year contract.
As far as money goes he'd be on a pittance compared with what he was being paid at Ferrari.

It'll be Schumacher that drew in Petronas as the title sponsor for Mercedes GP.
think I saw a press conference that said Schumi has a 3 year deal with them

Re: Michael's back - take 2

I can't agree it will be dull.
Michael is now three years older, there are  a lot of younger drivers coming through including his new team mate - the fellow German , we have Lewis and
Jenson as an all British team, plus other new drivers doing well.
I'm sure that Michael and Ross will make a great team - but it is no means certain they can win.
Just seen a great interview with him:
