Nothing has been officially confirmed yet by Mercedes GP or Michael Schumacher himself. But with so many serious and reputable sources now reporting that the deal with Mercedes GP has been done it does look like Michael Schumacher will indeed be back in F1 next year.
The original story suggesting that Schumacher signed one year contract with Mercedes yesterday at Brackley was published by Bild (link – in German).
It will be interesting to find out what had to happen behind the scenes to make this move from Ferrari to Mercedes and from Shell to Petronas possible.
The official announcement of Mercedes GP second driver for 2010 season is expected later today.
