The Return of Schumacher

Some great champions just don't seem to know when to call it quits, permanently. Pele, Mohammed Ali and Diego Maradona are noteable examples. Now, Michael Schumacher is in danger of adding his name to this list. According to reports, he has signed a 3 year deal with Mercedes, marking his return to Formula one. My question is, WHY? Why on earth does the great man wish to risk tarnishing his reputation as one of the greatest (if not the greatest) Formula one driver of all time? Does he still have the magic? If so, he will further cement his place in the book of racing legends. If, on the other hand, Michael's reflexes and speed are not what they used to be, then we might be about to witness a tragedy. I do hope he knows what he's doing...
