Michael Schumacher held preliminary talks with Mercedes GP

Published

Michael Schumacher has reportedly held ‘preliminary talks’ with Mercedes GP that could see him make a comeback next season.

The seven-time World Champion was set for a brief return with Ferrari during this year’s Championship before a neck injury put paid to his plans. But that doesn’t mean he’s out for good.

According to a report in the Daily Telegraph, ‘Schumacher has been sounded out about a sensational return to Formula One next season’ with Mercedes Grand Prix.

The newspaper claims that given ‘Mercedes takeover of Brawn GP and World Champion Jenson Button’s shock switch to McLaren, the possibility of a German dream team with Nico Rosberg is emerging.

‘The associations would line up beautifully. Schumacher won all his World titles under the guidance of Ross Brawn at both Benetton and Ferrari, and Brawn will continue in the role of team principal at the newly minted Mercedes team.’

The deal, which would net Schumacher the same salary that Button turned down at Brawn GP in favour of McLaren, would finally see the German teaming up with Mercedes, who were in the past unsuccessful in their bids to lure him away from Ferrari.

‘Talks are understood to be at an early stage,’ claims the Telegraph.
