Schumacher to Mercedes GP highly unlikely?

Michael Schumacher's F1 come-back with Mercedes Grand Prix has been ruled out – but only for the moment.
Speculation that Michael Schumacher might return to F1 next year with Mercedes Grand Prix has intensified, after his spokesperson said that while it was unlikely, you can never say never in this sport either.

Reports that the record-breaking multiple world champion could be on the verge of a return broke on Tuesday [see separate story CLICK HERE].

Furthermore while Ross Brawn has insisted that they are still in negotiations with newly crowned F1 world champion, Jenson Button, it is thought that new owners Mercedes might go for an all-German line-up.

Indeed while it is believed that Nico Rosberg will definitely join the Brackley-based outfit in 2010, his team-mate is far less certain.

Many are tipping Nick Heidfeld, but Schumacher would definitely fit the bill as the 'surprise' to whom Mercedes boss Norbert Haug refers in the new Mercedes Grand Prix driver line-up.

"You can never say never in this sport," Schumacher's spokesperson, Sabine Kehm told British tabloid newspaper, The Mirror, when asked about the stories Schumacher could relinquish his Ferrari F1 advisory role. "But you can rule it out at the moment. It's highly unlikely."
