Schumacher will replace Massa

Should be interesting, what's everyone's thoughts on this? No denying the guy's awesome but will it go back to the win-win every race repetitiveness? Which ever way it's an interesting replacement i think.

    The car is pretty poor so even if he was still 'on it', he wont do much too exciting. If Massa and or Raikonnen were competitive then it may have been different.

    he is a perfectionist so losing is not his style, if he beats kimi then tounges will wag.....kimi is in the worst place possible....from a spectators point of view,, it will be awesome, dont forget  shumi has done some testing in this car...not having traction control will not be a problem,,,,,his ego will

    dont forget also that hakkinen had a test drive early last year and was only a second off the pace...

    it will generate a lot more interest, big question is he fit enough and how quick can he learn the circuits

    Where else would they get a competitive F1 driver at such short notice?  It'll be interesting to see him race, but I'd not back him to win.

    A Grand Prix driver can do as little as five laps before being happy to attempt a timed lap, I don't think it will be  a problem. This is going to be the greatest comeback since Elvis.

    he will be fit enough, he is a fitness enthusiast.

    someone mentioned kimi, i dont think he will drive next year anyway, he has been rallying recently, and i reckon he will change to that.  there was talk of maybe a WRC driver making an appearance in F1. . . .

    I dont watch f1 all that much any more. Since Schumi left. however i will be tuning in to see his return. It just used to be soo much more exciting with him around. I doubt he will win, but he has bags of experince and im sure well help develop and improve the car. He should join the Brawn Team, Schumi and Ross are a leathal combination

    dazc   there was talk of maybe a WRC driver making an appearance in F1. . . .


    Sebastien Loeb who currently drives for Citroen. He drove a Torro Rosso not so long ago and wasn't too shabby. There was talk of him getting Sebastien Bourdais' seat but he is fighting for the WRC title at the moment.

    thats the one! i couldnt for the life of me remeber who it was when i was writing that post!  would surely make the move next year if he was offered a seat?
     
    But then if he takes the wrc, maybe he will want to stay and defend that title

    I welcome the return, it should be exciting but I don't think Ferrrari have the car at the moment.

    If Schumacher did not believe he can still win races he would not be coming back. They have test drivers who could easily have stepped in. He is back to show he can still do it.
