    Schumi wanted back in F1 because simply he loved to race. He did not care for the money at this point of his life.
    And I seriously doubt that it was because of any sort of loyalty to Mercedes. Merc needed his experience and he saw a way to race and that was pretty much it.

    This is a quote from Schumi back in 2010:
    For me, this partnership closes the circle. Mercedes supported me for so many years when I began my F1 career and now I can hopefully give something back to the brand.
    Of course he didn't do it for money, he was only payed measly 3 million dollar annually, which is nothing compared to Schumi's wealth. However, he felt he needed to give something back to the brand, and of course, he loved to race, otherwise he wouldn't join. He was called mainly to help them develop a winning car for the future, and that he definitely did.
