F1: Schumacher close to return

Michael Schumacher could be revealed as the lead driver for the new German super-team within days as Formula One gets to grip with some of the biggest changes on the grand prix grid in the sport’s history.

Schumacher’s comeback at 40 to join the new Mercedes team will dominate the new season. Mercedes have had numerous chances to flatten speculation but their denials have been no more than tepid and Nick Fry, their chief executive, failed to dampen expectations again, saying that Schumacher’s return would be “very good for our team.” “A number of drivers are still available if Michael were to decide not to drive,” he said quoted by “Then there are alternatives that we would be happy to go with.” But with Schumacher said to have recovered from a neck injury and apparently eager to return, there seems little to stop a comeback for the seven-time world champion.

He will join a grid that has changed radically since his retirement three years ago, with Toyota and Honda gone and Mercedes out of its partnership with McLaren to take over the championship-winning Brawn GP team. There will also be four new teams on the grid for the first race in March.
