Guess what? Michael is back!
According to the AFP article on France 24, the maestro is back. I guess that he got tired of just watching the race from the side-lines for the last few years. According to the article, he has signed up with Mercedes, which should prove interesting. After his successful career and retirement at Ferrari, he is giving them the slip and going for their rivals. His former colleagues and team mates are now going to be his rivals. This will probably spice things up a bit.
Anyway, I’ve not always been a fan of Michael. He has his ups and downs but there is no denying that he is a great driver who has yet to be dethroned. However, I am not quite sure how competitive he will find himself with the current crop of young drivers. They are pretty good themselves and some of them may have the chance of breaking his records some day.
Or maybe this is just a case of mid-life crisis? He is exactly 40 after all – just the right age for a mid-life crisis.
