    That is AWESOME, only queston: is that evolution or intelligent design?


    God (Bernie) probably had a hand in this, so it's not evolution.

    Eunice: That is AWESOME, only queston: is that evolution or intelligent design? Great line! Bernie at 79 does great for his age. It is definitely going to be a interesting season, cannot remember a year with more 'ace' teams. Imagine if schumi runs away with it or.........., imagine lewis running away with it or.........., it will take time for Alonso to get used to the Ferrari, i still cannot understand Fissi' struggle

    Some more interesting coverage and interviews plus video of Schumy's first F1 victory....

    Re: Jordan tips Schumacher to join Mercedes..

    It will be fun to watch, but don't expect miracles, three years is a long time to be away from F1, even if you're "Super Michael"......


    Re: Jordan tips Schumacher to join Mercedes..

    Hmm, isn't he still under contract to Ferrari as a consultant?


    Re: Jordan tips Schumacher to join Mercedes..

    No - they released him.  It was an harmonious split....

    PS - In retrospect, Button's move to McLaren was a wise one. He would have really been a "number 2 driver" to the Brawn/Schumacher "love-in"!


    Re: Jordan tips Schumacher to join Mercedes..

    bottomline is it puts a lot of people back on TV and on the trackside so it's a win/win for all. Bernie must jump up and down like a child....

    Michael will singlehandly bring millions back to F1 - watch the ticket-sales....and bets....I have mine running in the office already....


    Re: Jordan tips Schumacher to join Mercedes..

    I have lost my appetite for F1 after Schumi's retirement; so I'm very excited about his return and I'll definately watch this F1 season after 3 years.

    However, if I were Micheal, I would never ever leave FERRARİ. It is just more than a team and he was accepted as a son and a master by FERRARİ.

    I'm sure that Ross has big influence on his return and Schumi will definately improve the car much.

    I think alike with Reginos. There will be wins but championship is another thing..

    But the Scuderia didn't have a cockpit for him. Smiley

    My guess is, that if Massa for example had retired and Ferrari had offered him the cockpit next to Alonso, MS would have driven for Ferrari next year.

    Re: Jordan tips Schumacher to join Mercedes..

    Even so, MS had done it all at Ferrari 5 times. Why not try something different during his comeback? If anything this makes it more interesting for him.

    Similarly, Lauda was a Ferrari legend (2 titles and a runner-up despite his accident at NBR) and repeated his success with a  McLaren-TAG comeback.

     To be honest, I seriously doubt MS would ever race without Ross Brawn.

     MS said that Button's move was one of the reasons for his comeback. So apparently Button decided for his own reasons. (Cash?)


    Re: Jordan tips Schumacher to join Mercedes..

    Eunice:

    So now it's official, still can't get my head around this:

    Mercedes Schumacher/Rosberg  versus McLarens Button/Hamilton, that's pretty much UK versus Germany. And then the possible surprises: Ferrari with Alonso and of course Red Bull with Vettel.

    That is AWESOME, only queston: is that evolution or intelligent design?


    Intelligent marketing- everyone is a winner the more " eyeballs " that are glued to the TV screen.


    Re: Jordan tips Schumacher to join Mercedes..

    Good to see Schumacher back. Now I only need Mercedes to give the MacCheaters the thirstier, less powerful engines they produce so that the Engladers fail miserably and the season'd be perfect.

     Good point. McLaren also uses the Mercedes engine, lets see how many engine failures we'll see... 


    Re: Jordan tips Schumacher to join Mercedes..

    Is there a hint of conflict of interest here? Each engine is made, tested and dyno'd, wandering what engines Merc will allocate to McLaren. If I was Mercedes I would keep the top engines. Have the engines been allocated already? is it random? The engine doesn't need to fail, just 50 refs less might prevent Lewis from flying by Schumi.........what a season, cannot wait !!!!!!

    Happy Christmas by the way !!!

    Cheers,

    Mark

    Re: Jordan tips Schumacher to join Mercedes..

    Conflict of interest? Certainly.

    But the McLaren guys are not stupid, maybe they can follow the production process with their own engineers, ensuring equal chances? But then again how could you possibly detect fraud in such a complicated high-end product like a F1 engine?


    Re: Jordan tips Schumacher to join Mercedes..

    If the people at MB are any intelligent, and I suppose they are, they will do whaterver is in their hands to prevent McLaren from winning. Because this time they are no only battling on the track, since McLaren decided to slap Mercedes (the company that remained loyal to them through all the cheating scandals) in the face and create a rival to the new SLS AMG, they are also competing on the streets. And you know what they say: win on Sunday, sell on Monday.


    Re: Jordan tips Schumacher to join Mercedes..

    I like Piero Ferrari's comments, all very valid.
