    Schumacher returns for one race (or more?)

    What has been denied until this afternoon now becomes true: Michael Schumacher will return into Formula 1 for the next race in Valencia on August 23rd as a substitute for the injured Felipe Massa. Smiley

    Schumacher confirms his return on his website. As Massa might not come back this season, we will have to wait and see how many races Schumi will drive.

    Gents, I just want to say that I will have no time for Rennteam or anything else during that particular weekend. Smiley

    Re: Schumacher returns for one race (or more?)

     WHOA! 

    Schumacher on his website:

    "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."

    Now THAT is a race I'm not gonna missSmileySmiley

    Fortunately they show everything from friday practice to the race on sunday on television here in Norway, and I'm gonna watch all of itSmiley

    Can't wait to see the look on that Pussycat Doll face (that they keep showing at every f...ing race) when her wonder-boy boyfriend gets beaten by a retired 40-year old - if you can see any emotion under all that make-upSmiley

    Now, gentlemen, please place your bets: What's he gonna be? Champion, Competitor or Looser? 


    Re: Schumacher returns for one race (or more?)

     Another question, assuming he comes back for Massa and drives on for the rest of the reason (don't get me wrong, I wish all the best for Massa).

    Would he get Massas 22 points and the chance to compete for the drivers championship?

    No.

    Re: Schumacher returns for one race (or more?)

    I think Schumacher is going to rock.

    Compare Raikkönnen 2006 in Suzuka:

    to Schumacher:


    Re: Schumacher returns for one race (or more?)

    He's going to have a lot of work to do to get the car set up the way he wants it but there should be time. I think he will do quite well, if the car is up to par.

    Does anyone think Raikonnen will step up his game?Smiley

    Re: Schumacher returns for one race (or more?)

    Is Le Mans so devalauted these days? I mean, having a recent Le Mans winner in their team they have choosen a retired driver.


    Re: Schumacher returns for one race (or more?)

    Who is he going to force off the road? 

    Maybe not get your hopes up too high as I did for TDF, though this is more based on equipment than that.


    Re: Schumacher returns for one race (or more?)

    Hope he does as well as Armstrong! Funny analogy no? 7 titles, 7 tours and a come back!

    GO SCHUMI!

    Awesome! I just came out of my last meeting for the day and I see this news! Stunning - superb! What should I say, since long I will look forward to watch the next race!

    I love it!


    Re: Schumacher returns for one race (or more?)

    OMG!  This is unbelievable!  The King is back!

    Didn't I called this one? Smiley

     

    Completely different races, one is a 24hr endurance race sharing car with 2 others, the other is a sprint race for 90mins solo. 

    No matter how good Marc Gene is, he is only a fraction of Schumy, even when he is Ferrari's test driver.

    In any case, it would be a fun race to watch, I am hoping McLaren will have a competitive car with Ferrari to gauge how Hamilton measure up to Schumy.

    If it rains, my bet is on Schumy dusting the whole field. He is the best rain driver after the late Senna.

    Bring it on!

    Interest in F1 has been now been re-awoken..

    Re: Schumacher returns for one race (or more?)

    Raikkonnen and Schumacher both in (supposedly) equally matched Ferraris! Awesome, but you had better watch your fuel load Kimi.

    Schumacher and Hamilton (not quite the buzz he used to be) both on track together! Very interesting.

    Brawn and Red Bull must be a little concerned. Oh, Brawn especially; you brought it upon yourselves.

     +1 i had stopped watching this season as i was getting really boring. but this totally sets things on fire again. this is one race i can't miss !!


    Re: Schumacher returns for one race (or more?)

    Pity Alonso will not be racing

    Re: Schumacher returns for one race (or more?)

    As much as I didn´t appreciate Schumacher´s occassional sense of (over-)competitiveness this will become very interesting to watch. I am very curious how he will fair against Raikkonen, in the new car, after such a long time.

    As far as I know the newly established F1 "holiday season" and the current rules do not allow him to prepare the car prior to the race at Valencia.

    Did he test with the car during the season?


    Re: Schumacher returns for one race (or more?)

    Testing during the season is not allowed - except during Friday 1st and 2nd Practice and during Saturday Practice during the race weekends.

    Some reaction from various people in F1 to Schumi's return:
