Schumi in for Massa
« on: July 29, 2009, 06:40:30 PM »
His manager said it would not happen but I think it is great news that Michael Schumacher will take Filipe Massa's seat at least for Valencia.
I'm sure there will be more to this story. :yahoo:

Well, blow my socks off - I never imagined it would happen.  Well, I guess that is another scenario that will help ticket sales at Valencia.  Can't wait!  Doesn't he have to get a Superlicense?

He probably does have to apply for a superlicense but should prove no problem for the stewards or FIA or whoever.

Just consider if you had to make a judgement about granting a license to a nineteen year old with no F1 experience or Schumi who would you say is more fit to get the nod to step in mid season?

I for one will be glad to see the main man back and I'm sure if he makes too big a pigs ear of it he will be the first to see the error of coming back and not carry on.

Both Prost and Lauda have made comebacks, cream will always try to rise even if it sometimes finds things in the way.

This exciting news.  A silver lining to a dark week in Formula One.

Now we just need to persuade Renault to replace Piquet Jr with Piquet Sr.

It is a shame it is in these circumstances, but I cannot wait to see Schumi racing again.

I was in a meeting today until 7.30pm and when I got back to the car there was three text messages on my phone telling me the news. I guess my pals know how big a Schumi fan I am.

I can't express how happy I am that we will see Michael Schumacher drive an F1 car again, even if it is for just one race. It is like a dream. I really hope he does well and doesn't wreak the god like status he holds with me. I couldn't bare to see the great man fail.

The greatest driver driving for the greatest team once again. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

The report said 'Valencia and beyond' meaning likely the rest of the sesaon.  I don't think anyone seriously expects Massa to return this season.  We'll have him battling Kimi, which is going to be absolutely fantastic.  Hamilton always said he's sorry he didn't get to race against him, same with Kubica.  Well, now they will have their chance. 

Let's just hope he behaves  :DntKnw:

I was never a fan of schumacher when he was racing probably because he was beating my favourite drivers at the time but i cant wait to see him back. Ive got a funny feeling hes gonna do something spectacular and win the race and prove hes still the best out there. I cant wait for Valencia now its just gonna make the wait seem even longer.

The only person he has to beat is Kimi anyone else is a bonus.
On the down side I am working so will miss all the practices. :(

Wow, talk about motivation...£3million per race!  He's going to come home with Kimi's paycheque with only half a season of racing.  Plus as a bonus Ferrari will continue his £5m per season advisor's role (I wonder if that includes this season which would mean he easily beats Kimi's annual income this year).

Can't wait for the show...I'm sure Bernie is walking around with a perpetual smile and dollar signs in his eyes for the TV payout...imagine what the merchandising is going to come in at too.  And if by chance he wins all 7 races and Button doesn't get another point and Vettel/Webber only a few, he could actually get the 8th title (ok, I guess that's a bit over the top). 

Sure will take the pressure off the FIA president battle, which hopefully will move to the background for the rest of the season.

And, like Dare said, with this news, I couldn't care a less about BMW leaving (but like Jeri, I won't be buying a BMW anytime soon - I'll stick to my VW, which I can afford).

It will be interesting to see how he does. It's been 2 1/2 years since he last raced in F1, and 4 1/2 since his last championship.
