Schumi in Mercedes link


Recommended Posts

Michael Schumacher has been in early talks with Mercedes GP over a possible comeback to Formula One next season, according to reports in the British press.

The seven-time World Champion was set for a brief return with Ferrari during this year's Championship before a neck injury put paid to his plans. But that doesn't mean he's out for good.

Schumacher still works for Ferrari, but Brawn's takeover by German car giants Mercedes could persuade him to return in a car other than his former scarlet Ferrari.

Schumacher's former mentor Ross Brawn is also at the helm and the combination of him and a new German team could be just the mix Schumacher would relish.

Jenson Button has left to join McLaren leaving a big hole in the new Mercedes outfit, and team officials are thought to want an all-German driver line-up with Nico Rosberg linked as a possible candidate.

According to a report in the Daily Telegraph, Schumacher has already been sounded out about making a return to the sport, although his fitness and condition of his injured neck would be a huge concern.

Schumacher had rubbished any talk of a return before last year's serious injury to Felipe Massa left the Italians short of a driver, and it is thought the German's attempts to stand-in have reignited his desire to get back behind the wheel.
