BBC COMMENTATOR MARTIN BRUNDLE'S VIEW

"Michael Schumacher still says that he is back only to win the championship again, but Mercedes continue to struggle to match Red Bull, McLaren, and Ferrari.

"This has been a better season where he has remained closer to his team-mate Nico Rosberg, even though he blows a little hot and cold from race to race.

"The 'old Michael' is still there, though, as we saw very clearly with a great drive to fourth place in challenging conditions in Canada.

"He races again in 2012, and maybe even beyond."
