Who said he's going to drive in the DTM?
During he presentation of the new AMG for DTM last year they already announced that Schumacher will also be there for the first DTM race as he was during the first presentation...
Nothing to do with any driving wishes, just marketing.

When he first joined the team in 2010 he had a bad time getting used to the new regulations, tyres, etc. But I think he's slowly getting used to it and all he needs is clean races to shine.

The absolute pace in any tyre is an upper limit for any car.
Mercedes simply are still not using their tyres effectively.
Schumacher's outburst has more to do with his frustration at his side of the garage not getting the set up suited to his requirements and 100% tyre utilisation.
In china rosberg's side of the garage made some set up changes that allowed him to get 100%from the tyres whiles Schumacher was still stuck with 90% tyre performance.
Schumacher is asking for less critical tyres which allows for less perfect set up.
The fact that the quality of engineers and mechanics on either side of the Mercedes garage is quite indicative of the internal politics at Mercedes
