Schumacher's first Mercedes interview

Watch Michael Schumacher, Norbert Haug and Nick Fry discuss the seven-time world champion's decision to join Mercedes GP for F1 2010
It is being billed as one of the biggest comebacks in the history of sport, and Michael Schumacher's return to the F1 fold is expected to generate more than its fair share of coverage between now and the start of the 2010 season in Bahrain, but the German has already spoken about the task ahead of him.

Along with Mercedes motorsport vice-president Norbert Haug and team CEO Nick Fry, the seven-time F1 world champion has discussed the challenge of returning to the top flight after three years in retirement, as well as the neck injury that prevented an possible return with Ferrari last season, and the decision to rejoin the marque that launched him onto the international scene via its sportscar programme in the early 1990s.

Schumacher, who holds most of the modern-day F1 records - including the highest tally of world titles and race wins - signed a one-year deal to join the rebranded Mercedes (nee Brawn) team and rejoin the man who guided him to each of his seven crowns, Ross Brawn, who continues to bask in the glory of a world championship of his own in 2009.

"Mercedes GP Petronas represents a new challenge for me, both in a sporting and a personal context," Schumacher commented, "It is a new chapter in my racing career and I am convinced that, together, we will be involved in the fight for the world championship."
