Seven-times Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher has signed a one-year deal to return to the grid for the 2010 season, this time with Mercedes GP.

The deal is reported to be worth seven million euros.

Schumacher retired from Formula One in 2006 and was set to make a return with Ferrari earlier this year, but the 41-year-old had to pull out because of a neck injury.

Schumacher has won 91 of his 250 Grand Prix races and has started in pole position 68 times.

He will start his first race for Mercedes at the Bahrain Grand Prix on March 14.
