    Still only "as reported by German media".. (Bild), hardly authoritative!

    I can't understand why he'd want to do it other than just to have fun, but I think it'll be great for F1 and very good PR for Mercedes!

    The prospect of Schuey against Alonso, Hamilton, Button and Vettel screaming round in his Silver Arrow is quite exciting - the first time in F1 for a long time!!

    I think he's mad. He's already an F1 great, and not short of cash. Having retired at the top then he'll stay there or therabouts as news becomes legend.

    The trouble with being at the top is that you can only go one way.

    Indeed, what if he stays one season and gets flattened by Lewis...Then he will be remembered for that and people might say Lewis is better than him. Should have stayed retired as the greatest i think.....Great for F1 fans though!!

    booo......hisssss......and a big fat raspberry to his return.

    Honda must be gutted to think that Mercedes have bought Honda on the cheap to buy their success.
