Yes it is now official. Michael Schumacher will return to Formula 1 with Mercedes GP Petronas in 2010.

He will be 41 in January, and has said that he will be going for wins and the World Championship. Funny, I thought that is what all the drivers were there to do. If he does win a race, he will be the first 40-something driver to win a race since Nigel Mansell won the 1994 Australian Grand Prix. If he then goes on to become World Champion for the 8th time, he will become the third oldest Champion, with only Nino Farina (1950), and Juan Manuel Fangio (1957) being older, at 43 & 46 years respectively.

In sadder news in today’s blog, Arnold Stang, the voice of Top Cat, died of Pneumonia at the age of 91. RIP

Arnold Stang & Top Cat

Finally, with Christmas fast approaching, I don’t know who often I’ll be able to blog from now to new year, but keep reading, and I’ll be back soon. Merry Christmas to you all, and BRING THE BOYS AND GIRLS BACK HOME!

  1. RIP – Arnold Stang, 91, known for his nerdy looks and distinctive nasal voice made a living playing diminutive, bespectacled, caustic little men! He’s best known for “It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World” and the voice of Top Cat.
