Michael has always shown commitment till the very end, so with seven races to go, his drop-in is in character. I think Bernie who is very close to Michael, unintentionally let Michael's leanings out of the bag.

@elijah Actually the Ecclestone thing I don't understand. Schumi seems desperate to keep his future secret for now and the one person he gives it away to his Bernie, known to like announcing things. Makes no sense. Perhaps the October decision has something to do with the success of the upgrades being tested.

Bernie is an old man who does not know all he thinks he does, nor is his blather always that accurate. Schumacher probably has not made up his mind what he is going to do next season. He can pretty much do whatever he wishes, so why rush into anything like a rookie grasping at any wheel he can get his hands on. More than likely his level of fun is waning from the lack of Merc performance, so is holding back to see if he and Ross can get the program on track and to the front. If so, bet he'll be driving next year. If not.. who knows.

The title of this story reminds me of star wars... "The Emperor himself is personally overseeing the final construction of the Deathstar" hopefully no bothans died this time.
