Michael Schumacher has confirmed reports he is still committed to his formula one return with Mercedes.

After a three year retirement, the seven time world champion's performances this year have disappointed some, but team official Norbert Haug insists the German marque is not reconsidering its 2011 lineup.

"I am still motivated to achieve my goals in the three years," Schumacher, 41, told German reporters on Wednesday. "I'm not entirely happy with the results, but I didn't expect to drive everyone into the ground. Basically, I'm feeling good and having a lot of fun," added the record winner of 91 grands prix.

Schumacher admitted that qualifying is his most obvious weakness so far. "We're working on it," he said.His younger teammate Nico Rosberg backed Schumacher as "without doubt the strongest teammate I've had in F1". However, not everyone has the same perception about Michaelís return. The German's former Ferrari teammate, Eddie Irvine, told the Sun newspaper that Michael took his gamble to return and it backfired.

Perhaps it is true that in any profession, may it be sports, entertainment or politics, one should know when to call it a day and let the young lions take the lead.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
