MS vs FA vs KR vs LH

Shame that the 1st showdown will be at the horrible, hoooorrible Valencia track.

Spa or Monza would be too much to ask.

It's confirmed on his website. Was never a fan of Schumi but it's exciting to see him back.

At best, Felipe will need 6-8 weeks to be back, so Schumi could race on other more interesting venues

According to SSN Ferrari have said:

"Michael Schumacher will replaced the injured driver Felipe Massa for the remainder of the season"


Schumi v Hamilton is a mouth watering prospect!

From his official site:

"The most important thing first: thanks God, all news concerning Felipe are positive. I wish him all the best again.

I was meeting this afternoon with Stefano Domenicali and Luca di Montezemolo and together we decided that I will prepare myself to take the place of Felipe. Though it is true that the chapter Formula 1 has been closed for me since long and completely, it is also true that for loyalty reasons to the team I cannot ignore that unfortunate situation. But as the competitor I am I also very much look forward to facing this challenge."


Source. Very slow at the moment

:rolleyes: Dear God!
A 40 year old ex-racer who hasn't raced an F1 car in nearly 3 years, who has everything to lose and nothing to gain.

Still think of the kudos for eveybody who gets passed him! :lol:

The odds on Barrichello taking him out at the first corner in revenge for 5 years of being his bitch..... ? :rotfl:

Barrichello needs to be in Schumi's range to do that, doubtful with his latest performance

I remember a few years ago, my dream team was:

Ferrari: Michael Schumacher, Kimi Raikkonen


I'm glad that my dream team will become reality, if even just for a little while. I hope Michael's still got it!

I am a fan of MS, but this is a bit ridiculous. I do not think he has the fitness or the necessary experience with the current Ferrari F1 car to be competitive enough. Bad idea.

So, this will finally end all the speculations about Schumi not having the balls to race a competitive teammate. He will join the 2007 WDC on the same car having been out of racing for 3 seasons and at age 40. That's either crazy or very ballsy
