POLL: Will Schumacher regret decision to return?

Vote in our latest F1 poll and have your say now on if you think Michael Schumacher has made a mistake in agreeing to come out of retirement and join Mercedes for F1 2010.
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 protégé 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?

Have your say now...

The guy is a legend and one of the few people ever to have won the title in two different makes of car, he was pushed out of Ferrari and everyone knows it had he not got a flat tyre in his last race in Brazil then who knows he may have added another title. As for the hunger to win, we are talking about a bloke that was very competetive on a Honda Fireblade whilst riding in the German Superbikes series so the edge is still there, lets face it half the F1 paddock struggle on a padock moped. With the exception to Senna he is the most exiting driver I have ever witnessed and a massive coup for what I consider a boring sport compared to motorcycle racing and he hasn't done it for money
