It is finally official, after weeks and weeks of speculation, Mercedes Grand Prix has finally confirmed that record-breaking multiple F1 world champion Michael Schumacher will return for F1 2010.

Schumacher hung up his F1 helmet three years ago, but some have suggested that he was pushed out of Ferrari rather than jumped, being given the option of retiring or else staying alongside the incoming Kimi Raikkonen - the man the Scuderia felt at the time was his natural heir and long-term replacement, mistakenly, as it would transpire - and forcing his then team-mate and prot?g? Felipe Massa out of a seat.

The Kerpen native duly left, but he also left behind some unfinished business - and after his failed comeback in-place of Massa following the Brazilian's terrifying Hungaroring qualifying accident during the summer re-awakened his thirst for the fight, he is now back to finish it off.

But has he made a mistake?

Will Schumacher, who will be 41-years-old when the new season starts, still have what it takes to succeed?
