Michael Schumacher has told Ferrari that there is a "very, very, very strong possibility" that he will race for Mercedes-Benz in Formula 1 next year, team president Luca di Montezemolo has revealed.
Although there has not yet been any official word from the Schumacher or Mercedes-Benz camps about the progress of talks in relation to an amazing comeback for the seven-time world champion, Di Montezemolo has given away just how far advanced the situation now is.
Di Montezemolo confirmed that Ferrari had agreed to release Schumacher from any remaining commitments he had to the Italian team so he could make the switch to Mercedes-Benz in the event of a deal coming off.
However, given the opportunity for Schumy to return to a Formula One cockpit and prove a thing or ten, he appears keen on racing no matter the color of the car. Keep up the good stuff Schumacher!
