Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone has tipped “comeback kid” Michael Schumacher to beat both Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button to title glory in 2010.

The 71-year-old billionaire warned fans to prepare for a “jaw-dropping” season, with the last two world champions taking on each other in the same car and double champion Fernando Alonso trying to destroy Ferrari’s favourite son, Felipe Massa.

He said the big attraction for fans would be everyone trying to prove they’ve got what it takes to hammer the returning veteran Schumacher, reports The Mirror.

“Forget about winning races, I have him on my bill for winning the championship,” said Ecclestone.
