Michael Schumacher insists he doesn't regret returning to Formula One despite a disappointing 2010, finishing ninth for Mercedes behind fellow German Sebastian Vettel in the drivers' title race.

The 41-year-old seven-time former world champion has used his website to say that although the season had been a big challenge and results didn't meet his expectations he can't wait for next season when winning the F1 title is still Mercedes' objective.

Schumacher finished with 72 points, almost half the tally of his younger compatriot and Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg, and was the target of some criticism, which he says he can live with because some of it is deserved..
