Michael Schumacher to Mercedes GP?

Various reports are linking seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher to a drive at the newly-formed Mercedes GP team after it’s beleived that the German will no longer be a direct advisor to Ferrari’s Formula One team.

Schumacher recently renewed his contract with the Italian marque, but it seems that this ties in with the development and input into the road car department.

So with that said silly season has gone in to overload with rumours suggesting that Schumacher could be set to renew his Mercedes ties and take up a seat for Mercedes GP next year.

As much as we would love to see that, we believe the real reasons are more likely to be Schumacher’s involvement with the FIA after the recent appointment of ex-boss Jean Todt, with the Frenchman indicating that the German would always have a place at his side.
