As you probably know by now, Michael Schumacher will return next year to Formula One as Mercedes GP’s driver. Schumi, 41, will be by far the oldest driver on the track and he returns after three years of F1-abstinence.
His wife, Corninna has always been very supportive of Michael and it isn’t any different now either:
“It’s true that Michael’s decision to compete in Formula One races again is very unexpectedly turning our family life upside down. When he told me that Ross had called, however, I immediately felt that he was on fire again. As a matter of fact, Michael’s passion for racing is enormous and without this deep passion all that would not have been possible. This passion made Michael who he is today.
I got to know him as a racing driver and, even then, I always had every confidence in him. He knows exactly what he’s doing and he knows as well that I’m always supporting him. Michael simply needs challenges – that’s just the way he is. I can really understand his decision and, to be honest, I actually think it’s great!”
– she is quoted saying by Michael’s official website.
