Default Schumacher back in F1

Well sort of. Replacing Massa in Spain if he passes fitness. Per this>

ROME (Reuters) - Seven times Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher will replace injured driver Felipe Massa at Ferrari if he passes a fitness test, the team said on Wednesday.

"Ferrari intends to entrust Michael Schumacher with Felipe Massa's car for as long as the Brazilian driver is not able to race," a statement said.

"Michael Schumacher has shown his willingness and in the next few days he will undergo a specific programme of preparation at the end of which it will be possible to confirm his participation in the championship starting with the European Grand prix on Aug. 23."

The retired German is poised to make a comeback after Massa fractured his skull in an accident at last weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix.


Figured those that dont venture out of OT would be interested.

Kimi prolly says "Meh." Isn't he switching to WRC for good next year? I read somewhere that F1 does not motivate him much anymore and rallying is a lot more fun...plus it is not like he needs the money.

I always wondered if its more about the car/setup than the driver. Guess we'll find out if this pans out.

I think it's good for the sport. I am not sure how much he will be able to make the F60 preform. It's been getting better but it's probably the 4th best chassis out there.

Button v Vettel v Hamilton v Webber v Kimi v Schumacher...I like it!

Remember -- Valencia is a track on which Schumi has ZERO experience.
