Michael Schumacher returns to Formula 1 sports odds in 2010 with the Mercedes Grand Prix team, which announced the return of the seven-time world champion in an international videoconference. The pilot and team are willing to maintain their relationship for three years.
The ‘Kaiser’, who is accompanied by his compatriot Nico Rosberg, will return to the circuit after three years and retired after six since his last title, achieved in 2004 and 41 years of age.
During the last three years he has been an advisor to betting team Ferrari and even almost came back to replace Felipe Massa after his accident in Hungary, although some discomfort in his neck finally stopped him.
The announcement was made by Norbert Haug, Vice President of Mercedes Motorsports, who said the contract was signed yesterday. This move will mean a reunion of ‘Schumi’ with Ross Brawn, technical director who led all his titles and is the team’s sports betting director.
