Now, it's really strong rumours that MS will indeed be back for 1 season at least in 2010 for Mercedes GP. There's also been strong debates about his fitness, especially his neck injury he's been carrying since his bike accident in February. I did a bit of search, and i found some pics of his crash. http://www.bild.de/BILD/news/bild-english/PICTURES/sport/2009/02/2009-02-13-michael-schumacher-horror-crash/mfb-schumi-crash__11513572__MBQF-1234477264,templateId=renderScaled,property=Bild,height=349.jpg http://www.asphaltandrubber.com/wp-content/gallery/michael-schumacher-crash/big_1402schumachercaida12.jpg http://i2.sinaimg.cn/ty/f1/p/2009-02-13/U346P6T12D4213468F44DT20090213111437.jpg In the 3rd pic, notice the position of his head and his body. It's quite a miracle he still can actually walk after such a violent accident. Edit : I would really appreciate if someone could attach those pics.
