Ace Formula 1 driver, Michael Schumacher, who retired from F1 racing on Sunday after the Brazilian Grand Prix could once again return to Mercedes F1 team, but in a non driver's role this time. There is a buzz in the media that Schumacher could be a part of the Mercedes F1 team in a role other than that of the driver.

Schumacher, who made his debut in Formula 1 in 1991 took part in 307 races and remained world champion for seven times and has 91 race victories to his name. The ex Formula One champion announced his retirement in 2006 but came out of it in 2010 and once again tried his luck at the F1 tracks. However, his performance this time was not good and the former champion could not win any more F1 titles. In his last race, however, his performance was satisfactory and he managed to make a place in top ten, finishing the race at the seventh place. Mercedes F1 team boss Ross Brawn said that Schumacher's performance in the last race showed that the driver was still at his best.

Michael Schumacher is considered among the greatest F1 drivers of all time and a poll of 217 F1 drivers by the famous magazine Autosport three years back named Schumacher the second greatest Formula one driver of all time. Ayrton Senna was rated the best.

With an experience of over 20 years in F1 racing, Schumacher can help the Mercedes F1 team in many ways. He can come in the role of a mentor or any other role that the German team deems fit. The Mercedes team has so far, however, not made any announcement if Schumacher would work with them.
