    Seven-time Formula One World champion Michael Schumacher has joined Mercedes GP and will return to competition in 2010.

    According to reports by the BBC and German newspaper Bild, Schumacher has signed a deal and an announcement is ‘imminent’.

    Schumacher will be reunited with Ross Brawn who worked with Schumacher for all of his seven titles won over a span of ten years and who is currently the team principal at Mercedes GP, the team he led to both drivers and constructors championship this past season under the Brawn GP banner.

    The rumors and speculation concerning the return of Schumacher were fueled after a false start this past summer when the German agreed to return in a substitute role for injured Ferrari driver Felipe Massa. The comeback attempt was thwarted after doctors said Schumacher had not fully recovered from
    injuries he sustained in a motorcycle accident earlier in the year.

    This past week however, his manager Willi Weber said that a recent medical check with his sports doctor Johannes Peil showed Schumacher to be in a high state of health and in fact he called Schumacher ‘super-fit’.

    Schumacher will partner with fellow German Nico Rosberg. The speculation has been that Schumacher will drive for the team for at least one year, perhaps longer, until Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel’s contract is up in 2012. :clap:
